A first conference on health advertising was organised by the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Health in Dubai on 11-12 November. Opened by His Excellency the Minister of Health Dr Hanif Hassan Ali, the conference was designed to explore opportunities and issues around the new regulations and experiences in the UAE about medical advertising. WSMI was honoured to be invited to chair a session on ‘Future strategies for medical advertising: regulations development’ and WSMI DG David Webber made a presentation on ‘Health education on medicinal products’. Attendees came from many of the GCC countries.
