SEHA achieves largest smile in the world to celebrate success of Emiratization
SEHA’s Emiratization success marked yet another milestone in line with UAE National Day celebrations by achieving a Guinness World Record with the longest awareness ribbon chain.
Group HR Director, Mr. Mohamed Hareb Al Qemzi said”, “We invited Emiratis in Abu Dhabi to support SEHA, by taking part in the “Let’s Keep Abu Dhabi Smiling” activity on 4th December at the Dome, Rawdhat Abu Dhabi. Together we achieved a world record by forming the longest awareness ribbon chain taking the form of SEHA Emiratization Smile icon.”
SEHA, Abu Dhabi Health Services Company is the leader of Emiratization in Abu Dhabi. For the past three years, SEHA has successfully inspired and motivated thousands of Emirati youth of Abu Dhabi to actively consider a career in healthcare with the “Let’s Keep Abu Dhabi Smiling” message.
Al Qemzi added, “By creating an awareness ribbon chain that is 2,397 m long, we achieved Guinness World Record beating the existing record of measuring 6,765 ft (2,061.9 m) I thank each national youth who participated and those who supported the record ensuring that Emiratization in healthcare will remain the top priority among youth.”
SEHA is well known for introducing the highly successful Muhakat program, a hands-on training and simulation program that gives a chance to the Emirati youth to explore different career opportunities within the healthcare sector across both technical and non-technical job profiles.
SEHA is the corporate marketing name of Abu Dhabi Health Services Company, an independent public joint stock company that owns and operates all public hospitals and clinics across the emirate. ‘SEHA’ is a phonetic rendering of the Arabic word for health.
The company was established by Emiri Decree No 10 of 2007 and is a leading participant in the reform of Abu Dhabi’s healthcare sector. The reform seeks to upgrade and improve healthcare delivery to the public at a level comparable to the finest healthcare systems in the world. The program began by separating management and regulation – SEHA assumed responsibility for public healthcare centers and hospitals, while Health Authority-Abu Dhabi (HA-AD) was established to regulate the public and private sectors. The two organizations replaced the General Authority for Health Services (GAHS), previously responsible for both roles.
