Dubai: The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has called on the public to make use of digital platforms to access key services, including birth and death certificates and true copies of both.

It looks forward to providing high-quality electronic services that add value and meet customers’ needs, in line with the best international standards and based on an advanced digital infrastructure.
