UAE offers to treat Iraqi war victims

posted on 13/04/2003: 776 views



The UAE yesterday offered to provide free medical treatment to injured Iraqis to ease pressure on the country's hospitals which are suffering from a severe shortage of medicines and equipment. The offer was announced by the Abu Dhabi General Authority for Health Services (GAHS) which said the treatment would be provided through the UAE Red Crescent Authority.



Speaking on the sidelines of the First Emirates International Disasters and Trauma Congress, Mohammed Butti Al Qubaisi, Director of the office of Sheikh Hamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of GAHS and Abu Dhabi Economy Department, said Abu Dhabi hospitals are ready to receive patients from Iraq. "We gave the Red Crescent the green light to act freely and bring the injured to our medical facilities. We are ready to receive the injured and provide them the needed treatment."



Al Qubaisi said each state hospital reserves part of its facilities to accommodate foreign patients. "A percentage of the beds available in the governmental medical facilities are kept vacant to receive patients from abroad if necessary." For this purpose a new medical facility will be opened in May to become a pilot hospital in the field of emergency and trauma management. "The new Al Rahba hospital to be opened in May will be a pilot project for all the future hospitals to be built in Abu Dhabi," Al Qubaisi said. It will be equipped to match the most advanced emergency hospitals in the world. (The Gulf News)
