With the participation of heads of international associations: Launching the third Middle East International Dermatology and Aesthetic Conference and Exhibition, MEIDAM. 04 October 2018
Dubai-4th October 2018: On behalf of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Minister of Finance and President of the Health Authority, the third Middle East International Dermatology and Aesthetic Conference and Exhibition (MEIDAM-2018), was inaugurated yesterday by Dr. Younis Ahmed Kazim, Executive Director of Dubai Health Care Corporation (DHCC). Attending the inauguration was H.E Abdullah bin Souqat, Executive Director of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for Medical Sciences along with 900 doctors and specialists headed by the heads of dermatologist associations from around the world.
 
Dr. Yunus said that the conference comes at a time when we are witnessing an enormous progress at the level of medical practices and smart equipment associated with dermatological diseases, together with the growing interest to provide effective treatments for aging symptoms and other cosmetic products. 
 
He added, ‘‘There is no doubt that dermatology, with the increasing incidence of dangerous diseases, and in particular, skin cancer, is becoming one of the most important medical specializations. This is not only because of its interconnectivity with other physical and psychological diseases, but also because this specialization has made strong inroads for itself inside the healthcare system worldwide. Great reliance is placed on it to revitalize health tourism, with the divergence of its services, in particular those relating to cosmetic surgery, aging symptoms treatment and many incurable diseases which are known to everybody.’’
 
He pointed out that in regard to what we are witnessing at the level of incurable diseases and cosmetic surgery, there is a strong need to conduct further studies and experiments in which we can avoid the risks of skin diseases, control them and eliminate threats to societies, together with developing preventive means, treatment methods and creating new equipment for early detection of these kinds of diseases.
 
He also stressed the importance of enhancing doctors’ efforts and supporting their responsibilities and commitments in regard to professionalism and practices associated with cosmetic surgery. He said that the rapid pace at which cosmetic surgery has spread makes it imperative for health institutions and relevant organizations to conduct further researches that support these critical interventions, which has now become a desired goal of many different segments of society.
 
 He added “At Dubai Health Authority, we go on to develop many medical models with integrated disciplines, equipment and smart technologies. We also work to develop all departments of our hospitals and health centers, and most importantly, the Dermatology Centre and our specialized clinic, which occupy an important place among the areas we rely on to revitalize health tourism in Dubai, especially with increased demand for this type of surgery, and after skin diseases top the list of diseases that haunt many people.’’
 
In addition to modern equipment and technologies, Dubai Health Authority realizes the value of scientific research in this field in particular. It also realizes the big role that doctors practicing Dermatology and Aesthetics medicine play in reducing the psychological and physical pain that affect some people, especially those who suffer from incurable diseases and skin malformation, accident victims and those who want to eliminate symptoms of aging.  
 
Dr. Khalid Salem Al Nuaimi, Consultant Dermatologist, and President of the conference said, “For the first time this conference is hosting the largest gathering of official associations of Dermatology in Arabian countries as well as official associations from New Zealand to China, Malaysia, Europe, the United States of America, Mexico and South America along with an elite group of dermatologists from around the globe.  They all contribute to what is distinctive and new in Dermatology, Aesthetic medicine and Anti-Aging.”. 
 
 He also explained, “This year, we have introduced multiple workshops which have been prepared by an elite group of specialists to update us with latest technologies in order to provide our participating doctors with the latest medical knowledge and skills.’’ He pointed out that the conference agenda will also include the launch of new medicines, medical equipment and cosmetic products for the first time in the Middle East and North Africa, in order for Dubai to be the leading, unique and proactive platform to what is new and innovative.
 
Dr. Younis Ahmed Kazem, accompanied by Dr. Khalid Salem Al Nuaimi and Dr. Saad Bin Sami Al Suqair, Vice President of the Conference, honored Dr. Mahmoud Fikry, winner of the Pioneer Award this year, for his outstanding role in the development of dermatology and plastic surgery in the Middle East.
 
During the conference, the humanitarian initiative "We Care" was launched, through which free medical assistance and counseling for needy people with special needs is provided. The initiative aims to help and support families with special needs, and is supported by many doctors from different disciplines.
