Open Discrimination with Patients and Medically Fit Persons in Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

Discrimination and Harassment on assumption based chest scars.

United Arab Emirates
United Arab Emirates

(NEW DELHI) - Dubai Health Authority withholds my medical reports and deported me as if I am a culprit. My name is Charanjeet Singh, an Indian national.

March 2013, I received employment in a law firm in D.I.F.C. [Dubai International Financial Centre], when I appeared for medical test at al Muhaisna medical centre [A part of D.H.A i.e. [Dubai Health Authority], suspected that i have old T.B scar and I was deported immediately without given, a right to appeal.

Neither I, while working and staying in my home country or Dubai, nor my parents had any kind of T.B infection in their lifetime.

I went to A.I.I.M.S [All India Institute of Medical Sciences] hospital at New Delhi and done all my checkups i.e. Skin test [Mantoux] twice, Chest x-ray, Blood test, 3 times Sputum test and a Chest C.T Scan too on special advise by senior doctor to have a close look at the scar.

Based on my test reports, A.I.I.M.S issued me the Certificate stating that I do not have any active T.B. Senior doctors [A.I.I.M.S] asked me why did they deported you when there is no sign of T.B in our body??

December 2013 at Asia’s well known Tuberculosis Hospital in New Delhi i.e.[L R S - T.B Hospital] have checked my all reports and done my chest x-ray and culture test thrice at their hospital. All reports are negative as on date.

15th January 2014, Latest report from All India Institute of Medical Sciences [AIIMS] hospital, New Delhi has given me fitness certificate stating NO HISTORY OF TUBERCULOSIS IN MY BODY & NO HISTORY OF TUBERCULOSIS IN MY FAMILY.

20th January 2014 and 22nd January 2014, most recent test reports conducted from two different Pathological labs for the same test on different dates i.e. QUANTIFERON TB GOLD TEST (specially designed for detecting latent or old tuberculosis) are also Negative.

Hence it’s proved, there is no chance of either Active or Latent Tuberculosis in my body at all.

I really felt humiliation from U.A.E and felt depressed about this outdated law of deporting the patients just like a prisoner after he completes his punishment. I never expected this kind of behavior from U.A.E as happened with me.<

Medical support is zero (0) in United Arab Emirates.

http://www.thenational.ae/news/uae-news/health/deportation-laws-reform-lies-dormant clearly mentioned by Dr. Mario Raviglione [Director at W.H.O), this is absolute discrimination.

I have lost a lot because of an outdated law, I wish from my core - no one should face the same in their life without any reason.

I am feeling ashamed to say about the health support given in United Arab Emirates.

Expecting necessary action to be taken on this issue at the earliest.

Regards,

Charanjeet Singh
