(ANSA) - ROME, JAN 26 - Health and Wellness Week is set to
run from January 27 to February 2 at Expo 2020 Dubai, the eighth
such thematic week at the world's fair.
"In order to be really healthy we must also be happy," said UAE International Cooperation Minister and Expo Director-General Reem Al Hashimy, presenting what is the third-last themed week at the Expo.
"These two vital states of being human are linked so deeply and indissolubly. Unless we join forces to plan an inclusive and COVID-pandemic-proof global health system, we cannot overcome the difficulties laid bare by COVID-19.
"We must work to transform, in an equitable way, the way in which we access health assistance and strengthen the response to the pandemic, as well as aiming for a balance between physical and mental wellbeing". The eighth thematic week has been organized in association with the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBRU) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
It will explore the relationship between mental and physical wellness and the increasingly important role of technology in the construction of the society of the future. (ANSA).
