World Healthcare Congress receives support from Dubai Healthcare City
Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), a member of TECOM Investments, will be supporting the World Healthcare Congress, which will take place in Abu Dhabi from 5-8th December, 2010.
Held under the Patronage of H.H.

Dr. Ayesha Abdullah, Managing Director of TECOM Investments' Sciences Cluster and Executive Director of Dubai Healthcare City said: "When it comes to healthcare, there are many challenges and opportunities that we share with our international counterparts, such as creating sustainable health systems with increasing cost pressures and demographic changes, universal access to healthcare, fulfilling patient expectations, improving healthcare quality, health prevention and health innovation.
"In bringing together international experts from a broad range of relevant disciplines, the World Healthcare Congress provides an opportunity to share best practice and explore healthcare policy, reform and delivery in the face of the changing social, economic and technological environment for the benefit of patients now and for the future. Dubai Healthcare City was established to address such challenges in the region, so we are pleased to be supporting this important platform."
Vidar Jorgensen, Chairman of the World Health Care Congress said: "As healthcare grows more complex and specialized, World Congress keeps its finger firmly on the pulse of this rapidly evolving industry by engaging the world's top healthcare innovators and leaders to offer fresh ideas and unique insights. We will post these exchanges on the internet for the benefit of all and are very excited to be providing a global forum for the leading edge of health care innovation."
