Dubai Health Authority supports Women’s Health at Dubai Meet

United Arab Emirates: Thursday, November 04 - 2010 @ 14:28

Supported by Dubai Health Authority and chaired by Dr. Awatif Juma Al-Bahar, Medical Director, Dubai Gynaecology and Fertility Centre (DGFC) at Dubai Health Authority, UAE, the meet brings together a group of global experts in the field of women’s health.

The conference will focus on contemporary advances in the field of women’s health, update research on and treatment in obstetrics and gynaecology specialisations, discuss cutting-edge research that promotes reproductive medicine and fertility and provide attendees with in-depth information on current initiatives and state-of-the-art innovations from a host of internationally renowned speakers. Key topics that will be discussed include urogynaecology; reproductive gynaecology; fertility; high-risk pregnancies; surgical approaches in obs-gyne; gynaecological diseases and oncology.

“The continuing goal to improve women’s health services is becoming increasingly vital in the region and this conference is sure to bring the issue to the forefront,” said Dr. Awatif Juma Al-Bahar. “A leading team of experts from around the globe will provide insightful research and methodologies that are sure to benefit the practices of all women’s health experts in the region.”

Ali Kubba, MBChB, FRCOG, FFSRH, a speaker at the meet, will present his findings on the broader options for contraceptive and therapeutic use. “The hormonal contraceptives of the 21st century break new grounds on many fronts,” he said. “There are new preparations, some with natural oestrogen and new ways of taking the pill that increase safety and efficacy. There are emerging non-contraceptive applications to the pill to manage gynaecological or dermatological conditions.” Ali Kubba is a Consultant/Honorary Senior Lecturer in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the Guy’s, King’s & St. Thomas School of Medicine, London Guy’s Hospital, UK.

DIOFCE commits itself to the healthcare community and this conference, which will raise the profile of women’s health, is part of its effort to share knowledge in the field of obstetrics, gynaecology and fertility. It is being supported by leading edge researchers, who are involved in the development of challenging new projects. Participants will have an opportunity to improve their networking and examine the latest innovative equipment, among other benefits.
