A new veterinary healthcare platform is set to open in Abu Dhabi representing a landmark milestone for the region's animal healthcare industry, authorities have announced.

The health platform will initially consist of a cutting-edge vaccine manufacturing facility with two state-of-the-art animal hospitals.

Once operational, the facilities will further enhance Abu Dhabi's position as a regional leader in high-end veterinary services for horses and camels while producing the most technologically advanced animal vaccines serving the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.

The launch of the animal healthcare facility follows the signing of an agreement between ADQ, an Abu Dhabi-based investment and holding company, and E20 Investment, an agribusiness investment company in the UAE.

Fahad Al Qassim, Executive Director, Healthcare & Life Sciences Portfolio at ADQ, said, "Leveraging our healthcare and life sciences expertise, we have identified an opportunity to create an adjacent platform in animal health.
