The UAE is taking steps to prepare Emirati youth for dealing with pandemics and helping with disease prevention.

Nine new initiatives have been launched by the Federal Youth Authority, with a focus on crisis management as well as training and education programmes.

They also aim to highlight the work of young professionals in healthcare, security and other emergency roles.

A guide on caring for senior citizens will be launched, while there'll also be opportunities for Emirati youngsters to create awareness content on preventing diseases.

Also on the cards is a 'Youth Waqf’ initiative with the objective of engaging UAE nationals and organisations in allocating endowments to buy products that protect society from pandemics and viruses.
