ICBU calls for Boycott of Health Information Conference 2019 in Dubi


2nd, May 2018


International Campaign to Boycott UAE (ICBU) called on international companies, institutions, scientists, researchers, unions and international health associations and syndicates to boycott the IFHMA conference in November 2019, supported by the Saudi Society for Health Information Management (CHEMA) and the Department of Tourism and Commerce Promotion in Dubai because of the violations that UAE regime is committing inside and outside the UAE such as racial discrimination, the Yemen war, support for terrorism and violations of the rights of women, foreign workers and journalists. ICBU said that participating in the Health Information Conference in Dubai is an encouragement to the UAE regime to continue to practice human rights violations.


ICBU said it will send official letters to international health unions and syndicates to boycott the IFHMA conference and look at all human rights violations committed by the United Arab Emirates, especially its crimes in the UAE’s war in Yemen.


ICBU called on the international community to intervene immediately to stop human rights violations in the UAE and to force the authorities in the UAE to respect human rights laws. The campaign also called on all countries that respect human rights laws and the free world to boycott the UAE because they violate human rights daily, whether in the war in Yemen or with neighbouring countries or their citizens or residents.

The Boycott Campaign said it was launched in the light of the endless violations of human rights practiced by the UAE, in addition to its war crimes in Yemen and violations of workers’ rights, as well as the fact that the UAE is the centre of modern slavery. The United Arab Emirates today is one of the leading countries in human-trafficking and is one of the main supporters of terrorist groups in Syria and other parts of the Middle East.
