Webteb.com contains high quality reference information, the first Arabic-language drug index, forums answered by medical doctors and, to be launched soon, an innovative “symptom checker” licensed from the Harvard medical school.
Adapting to local health needs, WebTeb includes a large Ramadan section, containing medical and diet information that is meaningful to the millions of people fasting during the holy month.
“Arabic is one of the fastest growing languages on the Internet, yet high quality reference sites are still missing”, said Dr. Mahmoud Kaiyal, WebTeb’s Founder and CEO. “WebTeb’s vision is to lead with high quality credible health information in Arabic that will be accessible, informative and locally relevant. We are proud to partner with MSN Arabia, since both companies share the vision of bringing high quality information to health-conscious Arabic speaking individuals”
“The health and wellness sector is enormous, so we are very pleased to have partnered with WebTeb, featuring their content on our Portal” added Sherif Dahan, Managing Director of MSN Middle East. “We believe that WebTeb’s high quality information positions it to become the health site Arabic speakers trust”.
WebTeb contains more than 20,000 articles and medical entries and strives to involve medical doctors in each of the local Arab markets to use the platform to connect with consumers. The site is free for users.
