The UAE IBD Society and Axios International, a global consultancy that delivers solutions to drive access to healthcare, signed a memorandum of understanding to improve the lives of patients living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease in the UAE.

The interaction between Axios and the IBD Society creates a framework and agreement to build a supportive care network for patients. The agreement formalizes the mutual dialogue and strengthens the existing relationship between Axios and The IBD Society, focusing on elevating standards of care for patients living with IBD beyond expectations.

This MoU is in line with the UAE Vision 2021, which aims to develop a healthcare sector of the best international standards, provide the most satisfactory services, and ensure a healthy future for all members of society. Working together, we can achieve this by providing health services of the highest quality and efficiency, providing a platform for all patients to access the treatment they need, and encouraging the exchange of knowledge and advice.

Mr. Anas Nofal, Senior Director, Greater MENA, Axios International, said: “Axios supports patients with all sorts of challenges they face when accessing healthcare. Over the past ten years, healthcare has evolved, and Axios services have developed simultaneously. We continue to innovate based on the patient’s needs. The UAE IBD Society is fulfilling a vital need, therefore we are very supportive to collaborate on this patient centric initiative.” 

Dr. Maryam Al Khatry, founder of the UAE IBD Society and a prominent gastroenterologist, said: “Our Society was formed in part to develop the highest international standards of healthcare services for IBD patients and to provide a platform to raise awareness and encourage the exchange of knowledge and advice. Axios is our trusted partner; we are united for patients and collaboration will help us to achieve our goals.”
