The UAE-based Tadawi Healthcare Group and an Israeli government delegation led by Health Minister Mr. Nitzan Horovitz have explored ways to promote better cooperation and mutual investment in the medical sector.

During the discussions held at Tadawi Specialty Hospital, the group agreed to a joint venture with a leading Israeli hospital to set up a specialized unit for the treatment of diabetes at Tadawi Specialty Hospital in Dubai.

The Israeli Minister and accompanying delegation visited the hospital and briefed them on the state-of-the-art treatment and diagnostic services offered by the hospital and the strategic expansion plans of the Tadawi Healthcare Group.

Mr. Marwan Ibrahim Al-Haj Nasir, Chairman of the Tadawi Healthcare Group’s Board of Directors, stated that “We were honored to receive the Israeli delegation headed by the Israeli Health Minister. The meeting with the delegation reflects our growing engagement with leading international institutions focused on setting up new advanced world-class medical facilities in Dubai.”

“During our discussions, we agreed on a joint initiative to set up a specialized unit for diabetes treatment in Tadawi Specialty Hospital supervised by Israeli doctors, with the support of a leading Israeli hospital. We also finalized a time frame for implementing this joint project. The visit of the Israeli delegation gave us an invaluable opportunity to showcase our advanced medical infrastructure and treatment capabilities and the strengths and resources that we will bring to this partnership,” Mr. Nasir added.

The joint venture will support efforts to combat rising diabetes rates in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

According to the 2021 International Diabetes Federation report, by 2021, 73 million adults (aged 20-79) in the MENA region will have diabetes. This figure is projected to increase to 95 million by 2030 and 136 million by 2045.

As a leading player in the UAE’s medical sector, Tadawi Healthcare Group is spearheading the rapid expansion of its healthcare activities, as part of which it seeks to establish partnerships with leading international organizations to equip state-of-the-art treatment facilities across various specialties.

Operating for over a decade, the group includes Al Tadawi Specialized Hospital – Al Garhoud, Al Tadawi Medical Center – Deira, as well as a network of world – class medical centers and clinics providing world – class services in collaboration with government and private institutions.
