Health Authority – Abu Dhabi drives programmes to increase awareness and adoption of healthy living standards among the residents of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. These programs include mammogram screening for breast cancer, a program initiated by HAAD in 2007 to increase awareness and encourage women to take the test.

In a response to calls from the community to directly contribute to those affected by breast cancer, HAAD and UAE Red Crescent signed a joint agreement establishing an account to facilitate donations to combat breast cancer.

Money donated to the account will go towards supporting women with breast cancer during diagnosis and treatment. Further to this, it will be used to assist community needs with regards to breast cancer services, research and funding breast cancer support groups.

Donations can be made into the following Dubai Islamic Bank account: Red Crescent UAE: 003520572169501.
