Dubai in One Day: DHA launches innovative medical tourism package

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) launched ‘Dubai in One day’, an innovative medical tourism package targeting international patients.

The DHA’s latest health initiative launched at the Arab Health 2023 aims to allow international medical tourists to book procedures and access a wide range of tourism services within a few hours.

Mohamed Al Mheiri, DHA's Director of Health Tourism Department, said: “We are participating to showcase our latest initiative, ‘Dubai in one day’ that promotes preventive health screenings that could be available in one day between two to six hours. The demographics of the people that we are trying to reach are from our neighbouring countries, aged between 25 and 50 years.”

He explained that the prices were selected based on other competing destinations. “The idea is to draw home the fact that Dubai has similar services. We also have additional clinics, hospitals that provide one day services, whether it's rented services, commodity services, everything that could be done in Dubai in one day. This will bolster the tourism ecosystem and develop the tourism industry.”

Elucidating on the entailing costs for medical tourists Al Mheiri explained: “It is Dh800 for regular checkup, the executive price is Dh1,400, for the comprehensive checkup it’s Dh4,900 for males
