SEHA launches ‘My Medication in Ramadan’ Campaign

ABU DHABI: The Abu Dhabi Health Services Company, SEHA, has re-launched its successful awareness campaign, My Medication in Ramadan.

The campaign rolls out every year during the Holy Month of Ramadan to increase public awareness of the need to be aware of their health status while fasting and, if taking medication, to take it in accordance with their physician s and pharmacist s instructions.

It also aims to raise awareness among the public about the optimal use of medication during the Holy Month and how to avoid any negative reactions in the use of medication during fasting.

A team of pharmacists will be present at SEHA s facilities to talk with the public, especially those with medical issues, answer their queries and introduce them to the best ways of taking their medication during the Holy Month.

SEHA Group Manager of Marketing and Communications, Salama Al Mazrouei, said, “The goal of SEHA s Ramadan campaign is to educate the public on how to enjoy this Holy Month in good health, and enable patients who suffer from certain diseases that need attention and care during the fasting period to navigate the Holy Month without distress.”

“These campaigns will be supported by the SEHA s hospitals and clinics, with many activities and events that contribute to the delivery of messages to the public. Leaflets will be distributed to raise awareness.
