UAE, July 6, 2017- The Ministry of Health and Prevention recently hosted the meeting of the Supreme National Committee for the Control of Non-communicable Diseases in Dubai.  Chaired by H.E. Dr. Hussein Abdel-Rahman Al Rand, the Ministry’s Assistant Undersecretary for Health Centers and Clinics Sector, and Dr. Buthaina Abdullah bin Belaila, head of the Supreme National Committee for the Control of Non-communicable Diseases, the meeting was attended by representatives from Dubai Health Authority (DHA), the Abu Dhabi Health Authority, the Ministry of Education, academic institutions, the National Information Council, Friends of Cancer Patients, General Authority of Islamic Affairs And Endowments, Roads and Transport Authority and Municipalities, Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology and the World Health Organization (WHO).
