UAE Govt.: Social Services Last updated on Monday 26th April 2010

The social services of the UAE are those of the most advanced and solvent welfare state. Education from kindergarten to university is free. The heavily-subsidized health care sector offers not only preventive medicine but also the very latest in surgical and medical techniques.

The United Arab Emirates has been fortunate in having the wisdom to take great pride in its heritage and to preserve it while at the same time bringing its people the advantages of life in the late twentieth century. The combination of the best of the new and the best of the old makes the country a fascinating and enjoyable place to live in and to visit.
