April 3, 2011 - PRLog -- Dubai, UAE: His Excellency Dr. Hanif Hassan Ali Al Qassim, UAE Minister of Health officially opened the 3rd Annual Obs-Gyne Exhibition and Congress at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre today. The event continues on 4 and 5 April, and will attract healthcare professionals working in the obstetrics and gynaecological fields in the Middle East region.

This year, by combining the Arab Association of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Societies’ (AAOGS) annual meeting with the Obs-Gyne Congress, it has created the largest ever gathering of obstetricians and gynaecologists the Middle East Region has seen, drawing more than 55 regional and international experts from around the world.

Dr Shamsa Al Awar, Senior Consultant OB-GYN at the Al Ain Hospital, who represents AAOGS in the UAE, believes the UAE is the perfect location to further enhance Pan Arab cooperation and to standardise practices in the fields of obstetrics and gynaecology.  

“This pioneering event held for the first time in the UAE will be used as a benchmark for future gatherings,” says Dr Al Awar. “By incorporating issues such as breast cancer, midwifery, infant mortality and high risk obstetrics in the conference programme, we adopt a holistic approach improving the lives of women across the region. Five streams are running throughout the congress including perinatal and feto-maternal medicine, fertility medicine, gynaecological cancer, sexual heath, benign and operative gynaecology as well as education initiatives.”

Running alongside the Pan Arab Obs-Gyne Conference is the Middle East Breast Cancer Conference, both CME accredited by Cleveland Clinic, and the Middle East Midwifery Conference which is regionally accredited by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA).

Over 38 exhibiting companies from 10 countries are present at the IIR Middle East organised event, which showcases healthcare technology and innovation from across the Obs-Gyne medical sector.  

UEMedical, the healthcare developer behind the pioneering hospital project Danat Al Emarat in Abu Dhabi, is demonstrating its commitment to women’s health by supporting the Obs-Gyne Congress and showcasing its projects at the exhibition. Reinforced by its high profile partnership with Singaporean global healthcare leaders, ParkwayHealth, UEMedical aspires to advance the education and training of medical professionals who will ultimately become leaders in the delivery of women’s health throughout the region.

ParkwayHealth specialists have flown to Dubai to share their areas of expertise in a bid to encourage sharing of medical knowledge during the congress and to reveal some of the cutting-edge procedures, which will be performed at Danat Al Emarat Hospital.

Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa, the managing director and CEO of UEMedical, said: “We are indeed privileged for the opportunity to participate once more at this year’s exhibition and congress, showcasing our commitment to advancing medicine through specialised education. To us, world-class medical care involves more than state-of-the-art equipment and highly qualified doctors; ongoing training is paramount in any leading healthcare system. In addition to providing the highest of international standards, through our alliance with Parkway, we aim for Danat Al Emarat to become a well-respected hub for ongoing transfer of medical knowledge.”

The Obs-Gyne Exhibition and Congress is open to all trade visitors and healthcare professionals and will continue on Monday 4 and Tuesday 5 April, between 10am and 6pm. For more information about the Obs-Gyne Congress, please call +971 (0)4 4072 743 or visit
