He added that the cooperation with the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority comes in line with our endeavour to put the strategic partnerships into practice to make it easy for Emiratis to benefit from the preventive services, which could help them understand how their health is, and thus enable them to improve their lifestyle and maintain their health and avoid diseases.
The mobile clinic helps the government institutions facilitate the preventive services to reach their employees close to their workplaces in a convenient and well equipped manner, Dr. Al Darmaki noted
