Abu Dhabi-based DNA Health Corporation has announced it will introduce its bespoke ‘DNA 4 Life’ treatment and hospitality packages to key international trade partners at ITB Berlin this month.
“We have already received strong indications in advance from the GCC market, in particular Saudi Arabia, as well as Russia and CIS countries, that the ‘DNA 4 Life’ treatment and hospitality packages are a highly appealing product that will place Abu Dhabi firmly on the global health and wellness tourism map,” said Dr Ahsan Malik, chief operating officer and project director, DNA Health Corporation.
“We believe our leading-edge diagnostics technology, combined with the expertise of our locally-based team of US-trained and certified professional medical and naturopathic specialists and our luxurious state-of-the-art facility truly sets us apart and will raise the bar for healthcare in the region.”

Guests may choose to extend the foundational programme to an additional stay of seven days to continue treatment as required.
