Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, to keep pace with the latest international health standards in order to achieve the ambitions of UAE to become a role model at the regional and global levels.
 
He added that organ transplantation forms a sustainable solution for a large number of patients with, heart diseases, pulmonary failure, cirrhosis of the liver and renal failure.
 
“Hayat” App
 
Al Amiri underlined that “Hayat” App, which was launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has kept pace with the latest global standards, thanks to the country’s wise leadership that is keen to provide a healthy life for citizens and residents alike, and to achieve the ambitions of UAE to become a role model at the regional and global levels.
 
He explained that Hayat App gives the chance for everyone willing to donate his organs after death to register his information.

He also stressed the necessity of coordination with the General Authority of Islamic Affairs & Endowments in terms of raising the awareness and religious guidance for all community segments, whether through audio-visual media or in Friday sermons, about the legalization of removing the human organ after death, if the deceased was willing to donate his organs, or after the approval of his fourth-degree relatives. 
 
“Also, this religious guidance should focus on encouraging the people to donate their organs as it contributes to save patients life Who are in need of organ transplantation pain as well as alleviating the burden on hospitals and reducing the financial costs on the country,” Al Obaidili added.
