The second Dubai Health Regulation and Medical Tourism conference was hosted by Dubai Heath Authority (DHA) earlier this week.

The forum explored opportunities to further consolidate the emirate's position as a global medical hub. Speaking of DHA's continued efforts to drive growth, Layla Al Marzouqi, director, Health Regulation Department and Medical Tourism Office, Dubai Health Authority, said, "[The conference was] another important step towards our goal of attracting 500,000 medical tourists by 2020."

Now with 32 facilities, the Dubai Health Experience (DXH) initiative also continues to evolve, noted Linda Abdullah Ali Ruhi, head, Medical Tourism Office.

"The DXH programme has been growing rapidly since we launched in April and it has already proved a major stimulus to Dubai's rapidly growing medical tourism industry," added Al Ruhi.
