Know Dubai

The UAE offers high–quality medical care in line with international standards. Visitors can be assured that appropriate treatment facilities can be found in private or government hospitals. Medical procedures, including the use of sterilized needles and blood transfusions, are very reliable, and emergency treatment at government hospitals is free.

Most medicine is readily available at pharmacies around the city. Each area has at least one pharmacy open 24 hours a day.

There are no specific health risks, apart from the weather during summer when the sun can be harsh. Drink lots of water, use sunscreen, and have ample protection from the sun.
