Al Jalila Foundation   AE

Al Jalila Foundation, a global philanthropic organisation dedicated to transforming lives through medical education and research, was founded by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Ruler of Dubai in April 2013, to position Dubai and the UAE at the forefront of medical innovation.

Al Jalila Foundation promotes medical education and research by investing in the UAE’s medical treatment capabilities; it provides scholarships to nurture a home-grown generation of medical professionals and supports ground-breaking research that addresses health challenges prevalent in the region. The Al Jalila Foundation Research Centre, set to open in 2017 in Dubai Healthcare City, will be a beacon for regionally-relevant medical innovation produced by home-grown biomedical researchers. The UAE’s first independent multi-disciplinary medical research centre will focus on five of the most pressing regional health challenges: cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity and mental health. Benefitting from the Foundation’s global outreach, the Al Jalila Foundation Research Centre will bring together international best practice and regional expertise in a cultivating environment with state-of-the-art facilities.

Al Jalila Foundation is named after Her Highness Sheikha Al Jalila Bint Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the daughter of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed and Chairperson of Dubai Healthcare City Authority Her Royal Highness Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein.

Al Jalila Foundation is fully funded by the generosity of donors. 100% of funds donated to Al Jalila Foundation are invested into medical research, education and treatment in the UAE.

One of the most rewarding benefits of any sports activity is that it can save people’s lives, energise their minds and bodies, help the healing process and spread the power of good health where it’s needed the most. Whether we call it a CSR initiative or simply love for humanity, the outcome is the same, when we see how sports for charity can truly change lives. (source: Al Jalila Foundation website)

The high incidence of obesity in the UAE highlights the need for scientific research to develop life-saving discoveries to reverse the alarming statistics and ensure the future health of the nation. Through research Al Jalila Foundation aims to delve deeper into the causes and treatments of obesity and its effect on other health problems such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Mental Health

According to the World Health Organization, depression affects more than 350 million people of all ages worldwide, and by 2020, it will be the second leading cause of disability throughout the world after cardiovascular disease. Barriers such as stigma and discrimination prevent people with mental illness from seeking help and guidance resulting in many cases going undiagnosed and untreated. In line with the UAE Vision 2021 to be one of the happiest nations in the world, Al Jalila Foundation aims to drive change and research in the area of mental health and turn depression, anxiety and misunderstanding into hope, self-care and acceptance.
