The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has signed a three-year MoU with Dubai Courts in order to provide it with electronic copies of the pre-marital certificate.

Couples must undergo a pre-marital health examination to screen for certain genetic and infectious diseases.

At the DHA, the screening is available across primary healthcare centres. After the screening, the DHA will provide a pre-marital certificate electronically. The move has cut down processes from 12 says to just three steps.

The MoU signed between DHA and Dubai Courts will allow for other certificates and processes to be shared digitally between the two entities too.

“We look forward to collaborating and developing joint operations and services, especially digital services, to improve the customer’s journey with Dubai paperless strategy and to enhance the quality of life index,” said Dr. Manal Taryam, CEO of the Primary Healthcare Sector at the DHA.

The Dubai Paperless Strategy aims to encourage government departments to stop using paper in all internal and external transactions with customers by December 2021.

Dr. Suad Hashim, head of Specialised Clinics Section and Consultant Family Physician at DHA’s Primary Healthcare Sector, added: “As part of the transformation and collaboration, customers and Dubai Courts will receive the electronic pre-marital screening certificate. We are keen to continue our digital healthcare drive to better serve patients and improve efficiencies and healthcare management.”

Last month, the DHA signed an MoU with Emirates airline too in order to make Dubai one of the first cities in the world to implement digital verification of traveller medical records related to Covid-19 testing and vaccination.

Under the MoU, Emirates and DHA will work to link the IT systems of DHA-approved laboratories with Emirates’ reservations and check-in systems.
