Major Israeli-Emirati deal signed to start jointly manufacturing health technology

Israel’s largest hospital has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with scientists in the United Arab Emirates to develop new health technologies.

Sheba Medical Center officials on Monday confirmed a memorandum of understanding with G42 Healthcare, a large Abu Dhabi-based health tech company focused on artificial intelligence-based innovations.

Speaking from a signing ceremony in Abu Dhabi, Dr. Yoel Har Even, Director of Sheba’s International Department, said the agreement is a step towards furthering healing since Israel and the UAE normalized their relations through the 2020 Abraham Accords. One of the biggest steps forward.

“Israel has much to offer the region, including our entrepreneurship and innovative approach, and we can learn from and benefit from the UAE, which is a leader in AI and tech production,” Har Even told The Times. Told Off Israel. “This agreement is about two-way cooperation.

“The Abraham Accords represent a new paradigm for Sheeba to implement its vision of providing ‘hope without borders’. This agreement realizes our commitment to both support and learn from our neighbors in the Middle East.”

Since the signing of the Abraham Accords in August 2020, Sheba Medical Center has taken several initiatives to build relationships and collaborations with Gulf countries in medical care and research.

Sheba has partnered with the largest hospitals in Bahrain on research initiatives and signed an MoU with the Department of Health in Abu Dhabi to develop better healthcare services.

In the context of the G42 healthcare agreement, plans are already being drawn up for cooperation on stem cell research programs, infrastructure building, cardiology, oncology, obstetrics, gynecology, diabetes and fertility.

Dr. Fahad Al Marzouqi, Chief Operating Officer, G42 Healthcare, said he hopes that together his company and Sheeba will “advance scientific and ethical research, conduct clinical trials and reporting, expand and expand access to innovation in life-changing treatments Will make sure.”

Israeli politics told straight

I joined The Times of Israel after many years covering US and Israeli politics for Hebrew news outlets.

I believe that responsible coverage of Israeli politicians means offering a 360-degree view of their words and actions – reporting not only what happens, but what it means in the wider context of Israeli society and the region. .

This is hard to do because you can rarely take politicians at face value – you must go the extra mile to present full context and try to overcome your own biases.

I’m proud of my work that tells the story of Israeli politics directly and comprehensively, I believe that Israel is stronger and more democratic when professional journalists do that difficult job well.
