SAVE THE DATE!
It is my pleasure along with my Co-Chairs Dr. Veronica Slootsky, USA, and Dr. Inbal Reuveni, Israel, to welcome you to the United Arab Emirates for this historic international congress.
The theme of this meeting on women’s mental health is a key theme for the 21st century in our region of the Middle East specifically but also throughout the world. Studies show the close connection between women’s mental health and that of women’s children and families. Schooling or education and equality for women increases their mental health; increased psychiatric services and psychological empowerment helps women achieve access to education and equality. Therefore, as psychiatrists we are full partners in the efforts of mental health teams to increase mental health as well as participants in the social changes that are affecting all our societies.
We hope that delegates will not only participate in our scientific sessions but also take time before and after the congress to see the amazing city of Dubai and the sights and sounds of the United Arab Emirates. Both our historical culture and our modernity will be of interest to the delegates from around the world and we hope you will take advantage of the tours that will be offered to you by the organizing company. Our hotel, transportation, culinary and sports facilities are among the finest in the world and we know that these will both make your stay very pleasant and enhance your ability to take advantage of our scientific program.
The setting of our congress in the aftermath of the historic Israel-UAE Peace Treaty mediated by the United States gives this special meaning and is a cause for special celebration.
Please join us in Dubai from February 6-9, 2022, in our live conference with the Corona era behind us and looking forward to the future of the 21st century in psychiatry.

Dubai is the most populated city in the United Arab Emirates and the capital of the Emirate of Dubai. As of September 2019, Dubai's multi-cultural population is 3.3 million; only 5% of local Emiratis, the rest are residents from all over the world.
Located in the eastern part of the Arabian Peninsula on the coast of the Persian Gulf, it serves as the business hub of Western Asia and is also a major global transport hub for passengers and cargo.
The city is thought to have been established as a fishing village in the early 18th century. Oil revenue helped accelerate the development of Dubai, but trade remains at the core of Dubai’s economy, with the city operating two of the world’s largest ports and a busy international air cargo hub.
Dubai lies directly within the Arabian Desert. The flat sandy desert gives way to the Western Hajar Mountains, which run alongside Dubai's border with Oman at Hatta.
The Dubai of today is a city of skyscrapers, ports, and beaches. One of the most famous landmarks is the Burj Khalifa Tower, finished in 2010 and now by far the world’s tallest building at 828 meters. Its design is derived from the patterning systems embodied in Islamic architecture, with the triple-lobed footprint of the building based on an abstracted version of the desert flower Hymenocallis which is native to the Dubai region.
The western area of Dubai has small stretches of sandy beaches, which have helped to catalyze the city’s tourism industry. To increase the city’s limited seafronts giant man-made islands off the coast of the city have been constructed; the most famous of these is Palm Jumeirah, which has the shape of a palm tree.
The culture of Dubai is rooted in Islam, but globalization and immigration has transformed the Emirate into a melting pot of diverse nationalities over the past 50 years.
The influence of traditional Arab culture is still prominent in its museums, festivals, and attire. Generosity and hospitality are the most highly prized virtues in the Arab world, and tourists are welcomed with utmost affection and friendliness.
The congress organizers recognize the importance of cooperation between health and industry and the valuable contribution made by sponsoring companies and organizations.
