The 25th anniversary of Fathima Medical Center (FMC) in Dubai was marked by a grand ceremony featuring colourful dances and musical performances.

Founded by Dr. K.P. Hussain in 1997, FMC started as a small clinic in Deira but went on to become a pioneer in health insurance and played an important role in helping the Dubai government study the feasibility of mandatory health insurance for all.

In his address, the chief guest of the evening Dr. Shashi Tharoor, a member of India's parliament and former undersecretary general of the UN, commended Dr. Hussain for striving to provide "cost-effective comprehensive healthcare for all," and called him "a trailblazer".

Dr. Hussain has been an integral part of the development of medical security in the country. In 1992, while being part of the Dubai Quality Award, Dr. Hussain understood that with expats arriving in the country in large numbers medical security was a challenge. Between 2000 and 2004, Dr. Hussain studied the model of medical insurance in the US and presented his findings to the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and Department of Health (DOH).

During the event, the FMC group also announced several of its upcoming projects including a premium insurance service titled FMC First Care.
