DHA expands its medicine home delivery service in the UAE
Wednesday, 04 08 2020, Category: Health, Country: U.A.E
The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) announced that it has expanded the scope of its “Dawa’ee” medicine home delivery service to now cover the entire UAE.
The ‘Dawa’ee’ service aims to deliver medication to the homes of elders and people of determination who have a valid ENAYA or SAADA health insurance programme.
The DHA expanded this service to ensure that those who are most at risk for the coronavirus (COVID-19) and should avoid leaving their houses, are safe and healthy at home.
The DHA launched the service last December, making it the first Authority to provide a comprehensive medicine home delivery service as part of which a specialised pharmacist goes to people’s homes to provide counseling and advice related to the medication.
The expansion of the service from only delivering within Dubai to now delivering across the UAE was made possible due to the support of Talabat, which offered to deliver its medication for free, as part of its support for the DHA’s preventive measures against the pandemic.
Dr. Ali Al Sayed, Director of the Pharmaceutical Services Department at the DHA said that the ‘Dawa’ee’ service will be delivering medication 24/7 to elders, people of determination and those in critical medical conditions.
