The principal theme for IPS: "Striving for Healthy Childhood: UAE Enlightens the Way" is very fitting to the current discussions on Pediatric medicine as healthy childhood is always a prevalent topic.
The UAE is committed to pioneering and originating new ideologies and best practices, not only in the world of economy and tourism, but also in the field of medicine.
