Before the course opening, a press conference attended by the Ministry of Health and Prevention took place to announce the plans under the new National Program for Organ Transplantation. Dr Marti Manyalich was honored guest.

Likewise, Dr Ali Al Olibaidli, group chief academic affairs officer, assembled the International Society of Organ Donation (ISODP) board members.

As a result of these significant meetings, the course attendees, 53 healthcare professionals from across the UAE and Saudi Arabia, were privileged to learn lessons from organ donation experts from a variety of backgrounds and origins including Italy, Portugal, Belgium, France, USA, Germany, Canada and Spain.


Since 2016 with the introduction of the Transplant Law and DTI support, 6 cases of deceased donors allowed to graft several organs. It is hoped that this training course will optimize the opportunities that are now arising, transforming the lives of hundreds of patients across the principality.
