New guidelines for the treatment of breast, cervical and colon cancer in the UAE


Dubai: The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has taken a significant step forward in the fight against cancer by launching updated scientific guidelines for breast, cervical and colon cancer. These guidelines, based on the latest international practices, aim to improve the efficiency of healthcare workers, provide superior preventive and curative services to cancer patients, and raise awareness about the critical importance of early detection.

The updated guidelines were presented at a training workshop held in Dubai in collaboration with AstraZeneca. Dr. Hussain Abdul Rahman Al Rand, Deputy Undersecretary of the Public Health Sector, and Dr. Buthaina Bin Belaila, Head of the Department of Non-communicable Diseases, attended the workshop, which brought together a large number of professionals from relevant sectors and departments .

The guidelines have been carefully selected by a team of experts and specialists in the field of cancer to incorporate the latest research and medical technologies. The launch comes as part of the ministry’s ongoing efforts to improve healthcare and increase awareness on early detection and prevention of diseases.

The scientific guidelines present current recommendations for early diagnosis, necessary examinations and available treatments for detected cases. The guidelines will serve as a vital reference for healthcare professionals, helping them provide appropriate medical care and make informed decisions to improve recovery rates and quality of life for patients.

Improving results

Dr Al Rand said: “The updated scientific guidelines will be used as a critical tool to improve the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of breast, colon and cervical cancer, supported by the latest scientific research and studies. They provide people and healthcare professionals with reliable and complete information.

“We, at the Ministry of Health, are committed to advancing medical research and development, offering innovative solutions to address contemporary and future health challenges. “We will forge strong partnerships with community and healthcare institutions to promote better health and disease prevention.”

Al Rand emphasized that the ministry’s release of the updated guidance marks an important milestone in MoHAP’s ongoing efforts to enhance the skill set of healthcare providers, thereby offering better care to patients. This, in turn, contributes significantly to the reduction of cancer mortality rates, aligning with the National Plan for Non-Communicable Diseases.

He noted that the main objective of this plan is to reduce cancer rates, a goal that the ministry aims to achieve through rigorous implementation and periodic review of these guidelines.

Dr. Buthaina Bin Belaila highlighted that the ministry constantly reviews scientific guidelines to align with the latest international standards. This process involves the integration of cutting-edge medical research and technologies, a task managed by a dedicated team of scientists and medical experts specialized in cancer control. This will undoubtedly make the guidelines a reliable scientific reference for both health professionals and society.
