Emirates health services signs MOU with J&J

Emirates Health Services (EHS) and Johnson & Johnson Middle East recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU), to develop advanced health services as well as collaborate on creating hi-tech solutions to support the sector.

The agreement outlines various areas of cooperation for EHS to work on with the pharma giant, while remaining consistent with its plans and strategic directions. The agreement specifies three main areas of collaboration, namely, educational programmes and training courses, strategic solutions programmes and public awareness programmes.

The areas of collaboration also include developing a structured educational curriculum, that “guarantees the transfer of knowledge and allows healthcare professionals to upgrade and refine their skills through training programmes and advanced digital learning tools, incorporating simulations and virtual reality applications”, said Dr Yousif Mohammed Al-Serkal, director-general of EHS.

Dr Kulthum Al Balushi, chief innovation officer and director of the Training and Development Centre at EHS, added, “The outputs we look forward to from this agreement will help cement Emirates Health Services as a pioneering health authority and a leader in providing services that adhere to international best practices in the medical field, and upskilling medical, nursing, and technical staff in healthcare facilities to deliver these services. EHS is committed to signing more and more agreements that achieve common goals.”

The agreement will support the implementation of public awareness programmes and campaigns covering various diseases, such as obesity, cancer and atrial fibrillation.

The two entities will also work together to launch the ‘Silent Noise Campaign’ to raise awareness about and destigmatise mental health conditions.

The campaign is in line with EHS’ strategy to drive positive change and combat the stereotypes associated with mental health.

Marzina Collis, MD at Johnson & Johnson, said: “The MoU will allow us to exchange expertise and work closely with outstanding healthcare professionals and use advanced technologies to help develop their skills and attract more talent to this vital sector.”
