The Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre has activated the "Maternal and Child Health" programme, which takes place annually in August, in cooperation with 35 maternity and children's hospitals in Abu Dhabi.

The programme is designed to improve women, infants, children, and families health and opportunities through preventive, evidence-based approaches, and evaluated by empowering the community, especially women and health care specialists.

The programme includes a set of preventive initiatives and periodic checkups related to maternal and child health, in conjunction with maternity and children's hospitals in Abu Dhabi.

The annual programme's primary focus is to raise awareness regarding healthy pregnancy, antenatal screenings, newborn screenings and well-child visits. It emphasises the importance of attending periodic screenings on time to detect any problem early and provide the needed treatment.

"The programme includes a series of virtual workshops to build the capacity of healthcare providers to promote newborn screening programme and to emphasise the importance of complying with the issued standards."
