The UAE Healthy Future Study has been established in 2015 as the first national study in the United Arab Emirates aimed at understanding the risk factors of heart disease, obesity and diabetes with a representative sample of 20,000 UAE national men and women making up its study participants.
The study is conducted in collaboration with a number of leading hospitals and universities. NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) and the NYU School of Medicine are collaborating with SEHA – The Abu Dhabi Health Services company (including Sheikh Khalifa Medical City , Al Ain Regional Blood Bank and the Abu Dhabi Blood Bank), Zayed Military Hospital, United Arab Emirates University, Zayed University, Khalifa University, EBTIC , Healthpoint and Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi.
The collaborative efforts of these partners will help build research capacity at a number of national institutions, as well as lead this initiative on the path to success. If you wish to know more about the UAE Healthy Future partners, please visit our partners’ websites.
