HE Dr Mohammed Salim Al Olama, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP), said that over the past five decades, Emirati women have realized extraordinary achievements in all walks of social, economic, cultural, and scientific life, making them an active and indispensable partner in the country’s development journey.
"The UAE’s celebration of Emirati Women’s Day this year is undoubtedly exceptional as it coincides with the country making its way towards the next 50 years, seeking to become the best in the world by reaching further milestones with the help of Emirati women who effectively proved themselves to shoulder the responsibility of leading the country towards further excellence and development," Al Olama added.
"Recognizing the importance of women’s role in society, H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women's Union, President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation, and the "Mother of the Nation", launched this year’s occasion under the theme of "Inspiring Reality... Sustainable Future," to reflect the UAE’s keenness to empower women and foresee their future," he stated.
"Thanks to their accomplishments in all national, regional, and global arenas, Emirati women have today gained international recognition as role models. We, at the Ministry of Health, truly believe in the vital role women can play in advancing societies. They have incredibly proven themselves in the healthcare sector and were behind the most wonderful success stories after engaging in the first line of defence fighting the Covid-19 pandemic," Al Olama further said.
Al Olama concluded his remarks by saying that since the creation of the union, the UAE leadership believed in the latent and creative power of women and has made every effort to empower them and strengthen their vital role in advancing the country’s development journey towards greater heights of excellence, and this is probably what sets the UAE apart.
