Health Authority-Abu Dhabi

After communicating with officials at the Health Authority-Abu Dhabi by phone, email, and mail over the past year or so, it was our pleasure today to meet with them at their office for the first time. Our doctors gave several HAAD officials a progress report on the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation and discussed ways to possibly extend our partnership to benefit children in the United States and the United Arab Emirates. Tomorrow will be the first meeting of the Executive Oversight Committee, by videoconference linking Abu Dhabi and Washington, D.C.

Our various meetings today underscored HAAD's commitment to improving the health of children in Abu Dhabi and beyond, and we look forward to extending our partnership to provide tangible benefits to families in Abu Dhabi and the UAE.
