Dubai residents to get free screening for hepatitis C

It’s now free for Dubai residents to get screened for hepatitis C.

Under a new mandatory health insurance scheme, anyone diagnosed with the virus can now access care under the basic benefit plan.

According to the Dubai Health Authority, less than a per cent of Dubai’s population has hepatitis C.

It’s hoped that the move will lead to more early diagnosis and reduce complications to patients.
