Introducing Dr Maryam Matar M.D.

As an Emirati physician-geneticist, founder of 5NGO, and chairperson of UAEGDA, Dr Matar is committed to creating a healthier future for the people of the UAE.

Challenges are simply opportunities

With the passing of her grandmother, Dr Matar turned her grief into inspiration. Following in her grandmother’s footsteps, she dedicated her career to medicine. Seeing her challenges as opportunities, she worked relentlessly to convince even the remotest communities of the importance of screening and preventative care.

The medical leader of the UAE

With a forward-looking approach, teamwork, and the support of her leaders, Dr Matar has been able to truly make a difference. Aside from holding top positions in the government, she has established 5 non-governmental organisations. All of which are committed to preventative care, woman empowerment, and special needs care. With her determination, her vision for a healthier UAE will soon be a reality.
