The UAE’s Ministry of Health has released its new guidelines for the healthcare of those who travel to other countries, following a national consensus.
The guidelines, published online on Monday, were in response to the coronavirus outbreak in the Middle East and Africa (MENA) region.
The UAE is one of the world’s top destinations for health care, with more than 8 million healthcare workers and visitors in the country.
The new guidelines aim to reduce travel to destinations that are more dangerous for patients.
For example, if a patient in the United Arab Emirates travels to a hospital in Saudi Arabia, for example, it would not be allowed to return to the UAE until they have cleared the UAE national health protocol.
“The country is a safe haven for those who need help, and we want to make sure we are taking the necessary precautions to protect our patients,” Health Minister Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan said.
In a statement on Monday the ministry said it is the duty of the health ministry to protect the health and well-being of all its citizens.
The recommendations also include a national framework to deal with coronaviruses, as well as to provide information to health care professionals and visitors.
The ministry said that its guidelines are aimed at providing all Emiratis with the information necessary to make informed decisions.
The government is also working with healthcare providers and international organizations to share information and advice about the situation in the region.
