The memorandum was signed by Engineer Hamad Ali Al Dhaheri, Undersecretary of DCD, and Dr. Khaled Salem Al Dhaheri, Chancellor of MBZUH.

“The MoU entails conducting joint social studies with a positive impact on the quality of life, sharing data and training employees from both sides,” he added.

Dr. Khaled Al Dhaheri, Chancellor of the University stressed that the partnership will serve the local community by adopting initiatives that improve the quality of services through a clear scientific and research-based approach.

“Our community members belong to diverse cultures and different customs, and the state fully embraces them in perfect harmony by providing all the necessities that will enable them to enjoy a better quality of life,” he said.
