Masud Husain, Canadian Ambassador to the UAE, to discuss the potential of strengthening and consolidating cooperative ties in the field of health for the two countries, especially in the exchange and transfer of knowledge and experiences, promotion and adoption of best medical practices and continuing medical education. Also present during the meeting was Dr. Issa Ahmad Al Mansouri, Director of the Undersecretary's Office and Director of International Health Relations for the Ministry.

During the meeting, both officials reviewed the bilateral relations enjoyed by both countries and discussed ways on how to further enhance relations for the health sector.
