In a significant stride toward strengthening Emiratisation initiatives in Dubai, the Emirati Human Resources Development Council in Dubai and the Dubai Health Authority have inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
Enhancing Emiratisation Efforts in Dubai's Healthcare Sector
The primary aim of this agreement is to bolster collaboration between the two entities in order to expedite Emiratization efforts within the healthcare sector and create opportunities for Emiratis to access professional roles in this crucial field.
Empowering Emiratis in Healthcare
Under the terms of the MoU, both parties are committed to providing a set of incentives to institutions and establishments that extend employment opportunities to Emirati professionals.
This initiative is not solely about offering jobs but also encompasses a comprehensive approach to training and qualification programs for Emiratis. These programs are designed to sharpen their skills and prepare them to effectively contribute to modernization and development efforts within the healthcare sector.
The MoU signing took place during the "Health Talents" exhibition, further highlighting the commitment to nurturing talent in the healthcare industry.
Abdullah Ali bin Zayed Al Falasi, Director-General of the Human Resources Department in Dubai and Deputy Chairman of the Emirati Human Resources Development Council in Dubai, signed the MoU on behalf of the Emirati Human Resources Development Council in Dubai. Awad Saghir Al Ketbi, Director-General of the Dubai Health Authority, signed the agreement on behalf of the DHA.
Strategic Significance of the Healthcare Sector
Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansoori, Chairman of the Emirati Human Resources Development Council in Dubai, underscored the critical importance of the healthcare sector in human life. He highlighted the sector's role in achieving a remarkable enhancement of service quality and its contributions to the national economy.
Although Emirati talents currently make important contributions to the industry, there is still a strategic imperative to further strengthen the healthcare sector with the addition of specialized Emirati skills across a variety of sectors. This is particularly important for the economic growth of Dubai and the United Arab Emirates as a whole.
Al Mansoori stated that this partnership reflects the commitment of the Dubai Health Authority to support the Emirati Human Resources Development Council's efforts in realizing localization targets in the private medical sector.
The collaboration serves as a platform for synergizing efforts to align with the vision of leadership in creating a healthcare sector prepared for future demands where citizens strategically contribute. This not only empowers them to chart professional paths aligned with their aspirations but also capitalizes on their capabilities within this vital sector. Additionally, it gives the private healthcare sector a chance to utilize the added value that Emirati talents bring.
Fostering local talent in healthcare
The agreement signifies a pivotal step in advancing the healthcare sector's human resources by promoting local talent and facilitating their growth and involvement in this critical field, ultimately contributing to the sector's overall advancement.
