The agreement was signed at the Ministry’s head office in Dubai by Dr. Hussein Abdel-Rahman Al Rand, Assistant Undersecretary of MOHAPS’s Health Centers and Clinics Sector, and H.E. Sawsan Al Fahoum Jafar, Chairman of the Board of the Friends of Breast Cancer Patients Society.

This supports the Ministry’s efforts to raise awareness regarding the importance of regular checkups for the early detection of cancer. The Ministry exerts all efforts to encourage the further adoption of a healthy lifestyle by the community, to reduce the risk of disease. MOHAP launched the ‘Itmenan’ initiative to reduce the number of deaths from cancer. Through the initiative, the Ministry successful lowered the numbered of deaths caused by cancer from 99 in 100,000 people, to 64.2. This adheres to the framework of the UAE Vision 2021.

The agreement was signed to strengthen the UAE’s National Cancer Registry, and achieve key performance indicators. Jafar noted the important role the agreement will play to strengthen the National Cancer Registry, while enhancing cooperation to combat breast cancer, and encouraging all concerned parties to provide as much support as possible.
