Nearly 8,000 healthcare workers responded to the survey conducted by the Frontline Heroes Office.

About 85 per cent of the UAE's health workers on the Covid-19 frontlines are satisfied with their jobs, a survey has revealed. This despite the pandemic-related pressures. About 86 per per cent expressed satisfaction with the quality of facility infrastructure and availability of adequate resources to manage the current situation.

Nearly 8,000 healthcare workers responded to the survey conducted by the Frontline Heroes Office. The respondents overwhelmingly approve of the government's handling of the outbreak. Nearly 95 per cent of those surveyed support the coordinated national pandemic response.

The repondents also identified challenges that the Frontline Heroes Office will work to address through its support programme. Analysis of the research findings identified five central themes as areas of focus: Recognition and appreciation, overall health and wellbeing, job satisfaction, cost of living, and long-term job retention.

"Our frontline heroes are genuinely committed to and believe in the united together mantra of our nation's leaders as the key to successfully overcoming this pandemic. At the same time, we need to always work to better understand and respond to the pain points and challenges they face. We want to create an environment where these incredibly talented and committed frontline heroes receive the kind of support and recognition that makes them want to continue to build their careers and raise their families here in the UAE," said Dr Maha Barakat, Director-General of the Frontline Heroes Office.
