SNOMED International and the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Health and Prevention are pleased to announce that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has become SNOMED International’s 41st Member.
The UAE is the fourth Middle East country, following Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, to join SNOMED International, further extending the SNOMED CT use, implementation experience and collaboration opportunities for the region. Effective as of May 2021, UAE users can register to request a free license for use of SNOMED CT by visiting the country’s National Release Center website. In addition to the many benefits the country can realize through implementing SNOMED CT, its use will also support the UAE in achieving its 2017-2021 strategic healthcare objectives and beyond.
