The city of Dubai is already incredibly advanced, and now they are planning to attempt to wipe out genetic diseases in their country. They have launched a project called the Dubai 10X Initiative where they hope to end diseases due to genetic disorders and create customized treatment plans.

A government organization is planning to create a database for all of its residents (over 3 million people) and are planning to DNA test all of their residents, whether they are a citizen or non-citizen.

Through this initiative, Dubai is hoping to encourage healthier lifestyles for residents that are at a higher risk for genetic disorders or diseases, to lower their chance of developing the diseases in the first place.

The UAE is continuing to lead the way in healthcare initiatives throughout the world.
