The UAE and Israel signed an agreement aimed at enhancing the quality of healthcare in both countries.

The Emirates Health Services Establishment (EHSE) announced on Thursday that it had signed a cooperation agreement with the Israeli Ministry of Health, aimed at enhancing quality of healthcare in the two countries.

The agreement was signed in the presence of Abdul Rahman bin Mohammad bin Nasser Al Owais, Minister of Health and Prevention.

Dr Al Serkal said the agreement would enhance the protection of health data for patients and involve the exchange of research between the two countries.

“The UAE and Israel have proven their superior prowess in the healthcare field, as the Covid-19 vaccination programmes in the two countries are among the fastest and most efficient globally,” he said.

The UAE and Israel signed the Abraham Accord last September and established direct diplomatic relations.

The two countries also signed several bilateral agreements, including a reciprocal visa waiver deal.
