UAE Healthy Future Study

Leading clinical epidemiologist Dr Raghib Ali partnered with Tamkeen and NYUAD, alongside a host of other local partners including Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, to develop and lead the UAE Healthy Future Study into the causes of multiple chronic diseases in the UAE.

The project assesses how the health of a sample of 20,000 Emiratis is affected by lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors, while exploring and analysing the risk markers associated with obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

The findings generated by the study and its partners – which also include the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company and Sheikh Khalifa Medical City – enable the development of preventative interventions to improve the health of the UAE population.
