Low-income migrant workers in UAE to get affordable medicines

0

The UAE’s Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has expanded its “Hand in Hand” initiative which aims to provide affordable medicines to uninsured and low-income expat patients.

MoHAP, along with Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, and Axios, a global healthcare consulting firm, recently signed an appendix to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to expand the scope of the initiative.

The initiative aims to provide affordable medicines to uninsured and low-income expat patients or those whose insurance is not covering the cost of treatment of the following diseases: pulmonary arterial hypertension, multiple myeloma, active ulcerative colitis, and psoriatic arthritis.
