The screening can be taken at any primary and specialised care centres from the following entities: Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), Mubadala Healthcare, NMC Healthcare, Mediclinic and Burjeel Holdings. Consequently, the screening results will be added to the Malaffi health information exchange platform.
