ABU DHABI, 2nd November, 2023 (WAM) – The 2nd International Nursing, Midwifery Allied Health Congress is set to take place in Abu Dhabi between 9th to 11th November under the patronage of H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, the “Mother of the Nation,” Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union (GWU), President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, and Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation (FDF).

Leading healthcare professionals and educators from across the globe will converge for the event to be held at ADNEC, featuring five specialised tracks, over 50 renowned speakers, and more than 1,000 delegates. With the theme ‘Empower. Excel. Sustain’, this three-day congress promises to be a milestone event in the healthcare community.

The congress, organised by Burjeel Holdings, will feature a lineup of keynote speakers, plenary sessions, panel discussions, workshops, interactive podium presentations and a poster gallery. Participants from over 20 countries are expected to attend the event, which will offer dynamic learning and networking opportunities. 

The congress will provide a unique platform for healthcare professionals to exchange knowledge and discuss innovative solutions in clinical practice, patient care, and healthcare delivery.

The congress will feature a Leadership Majlis for CEOs, C-suite executives, policymakers, academics, and world-class healthcare thought-leaders, who will share actionable ideas on critical national, regional, and international issues in the healthcare sector.

Another highlight of the event will be the inaugural UAE Nursing Youth Forum, which will run in parallel with the main sessions, offering an opportunity for local students and novice nurses to engage with their professional colleagues and open channels for ongoing communication.

During these sessions, Emirati youth leaders, academic influencers, and nursing and allied health students will discuss the current state and future direction of nursing. On the last day, young Emirati representatives from the Youth Forum group will deliver a presentation with their recommendations to the congress participants.
