• MoU facilitates electronic linking of pre-marital screening certificate
• MoU in line with the Dubai Paperless Strategy and supports the digital drive of both entities.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, March 14, 2021:  In line with the digital transformation drive of the Dubai Health Authority, the DHA has implemented the issuance of electronic pre-marital certificates.
It is mandatory for couples to undergo a pre-marital health examination to screen for certain genetic and infectious diseases. At DHA, the screening is available across primary healthcare centres. After the screening, DHA provides a pre-marital certificate electronically. The move has cut down processes from 12 to just three simple steps. 
Now, the DHA has moved one-step further by linking the electronic premarital certificate with Dubai Courts to provide customers with added convenience; reduce waiting time and enhance overall efficiencies.
The Dubai Health Authority recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Dubai Courts in this regard with an overall mandate of electronically linking certificates and processes. 
The MoU was signed between Dr Manal Taryam, CEO of Primary Healthcare Sector at the Dubai Health Authority and Mohamed Ahmed Youssef Al Obaidly, CEO of the Case Management Sector at Dubai Courts in presence of a number of officials from both sides.
Dr Taryam said: “In line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the MoU aims to foster cooperation and coordination between the government entities in Dubai. We look forward to collaborating and developing joint operations and services, especially digital services, to improve the customer journey in line with Dubai paperless strategy and to enhance the quality of life index.”
Al Obaidly highlighted that such cooperation is in line with the vision of the leaders, the Dubai Paperless Strategy and Smart Dubai. It helps drive the digital ambitions of both entities and is aimed to provide added convenience to customers.  
He said the MoU is in line with Dubai's vision of making the Emirate the smartest, most efficient and integrated city in the world in terms of linking government services provided to customers. 
He added that the department is keen to enhance its continuous efforts to provide the best electronic and smart services to its partners and customers.
In line with the MoU, both parties have collaborated to link the pre-marital certificate. 
Dr Suad Hashim, Head of Specialized Clinics Section & Consultant Family Physician at DHA's Primary Healthcare Sector said: “The electronic transformation of pre-marital screening service greatly improves customer journey and satisfaction, saves the customer's time and reduces any inconvenience. As part of the transformation and collaboration, customers and Dubai Courts will receive the electronic premarital screening certificate. Moreover, this is in line with the Dubai Paperless Strategy and we are keen to continue our digital healthcare drive to better serve patients and improve efficiencies and healthcare management.”
The three-year MoU will promote cooperation in joint digital services.
