MoHAP hosts workshop to promote tolerance values among employees

The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has organised a training workshop, in cooperation with the Ministry of Tolerance and Coexistence, to promote the values of tolerance among employees and provide staff with practical knowledge and skills about community coexistence.

Held at the ministry’s headquarters in Dubai, the two-day event aimed to unleash employees’ potential to innovate and lead initiatives, enhance the values of human brotherhood and develop ”Knights of Tolerance” not only in the workplace, but also in the wider society.

The workshop was attended by Ahmad Ali Al Dashti, Assistant Under-Secretary for the Support Services Sector in MoHaP; Mohammed Abdullah Al Zarooni, Director of MoHAP Representative Office in Sharjah, Chairman of the Tolerance Committee in the Ministry; and Wedad Bu Hamid, Director of the Government Communication Department; in addition to a number of employees.

During the gathering, participants were briefed on the practical criteria and academic norms for adopting the concepts of tolerance and coexistence as a way of life and an institutional approach. The event also reviewed the foundations and rules of tolerance in the UAE, as well as the best practices and experience provided by the country in the field of promoting humanitarian principles at the local and global levels.

The workshop kicked off with a speech by Al Dashti, during which he affirmed that the UAE has evolved into a role model for human fraternity and coexistence as well as a unique example for laying solid foundations for tolerance both locally and globally.

“The UAE has long maintained that tolerance is an essential pillar of the Union’s system of values and a cornerstone of humanity’s future. As a result, it has become a breeding ground for over 200 nations with diverse traditions and faiths, living in peace and regulated by legislation and laws that provide justice, respect, and equality for all.

“Tolerance has become a sustainable institutional culture in the UAE, thanks to the well-thought-out directives of our wise leadership. The UAE has always looked forward to the future with optimism, driven by the ‘Principles of the 50’ to strengthen the country’s value system of openness, tolerance, respect of other cultures, and human fraternity,” Al Dashti stated.

For his part, Mohammed Al Zarooni stressed that MoHAP’s initiatives and projects launched to propagate and bolster the values of tolerance stem from the forward-looking vision of the UAE’s wise leadership, which truly believes in the role that tolerance can play in supporting the country’s success and prosperity, and driving the UAE’s sustainable development to the next level.

Presented by Counselor Rashid Ibrahim Al Nuaimi, Advisor to Strategic Planning and Institutional Performance Management at the Ministry of Tolerance and Coexistence, the workshop covered a variety of topics and introduced participants to the fundamental concepts of tolerance, allowing them to employ the six keys of a tolerant personality.

The participants were also given an overview of the fundamentals and skills required to build a tolerant and cooperative work environment, to ensure the happiness and satisfaction of customers.
