Hanaa Taiseer, Head of the Health Sector of Essad Card Committee, said that the 75-year-old former employee’s health insurance has expired, and so has his sons.

“Therefore, Dubai Police, in collaboration with Emirates Specialty Hospital, provides them with free-of-charge treatment and care, as their health condition needed special and consistent health supervision.”

The healthcare coverage includes free medical consultations, blood and diabetes tests, following-up with nutritionists and provision of necessary medicines. It also will assist them to expand their knowledge of their nutrition needs as diabetic patients.
