The Dubai International Humanitarian Aid and Development Conference and Exhibition is one of the most pioneering international events focusing on the humanitarian and development fields, and is organised annually in Dubai under the patronage of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. DIHAD attracts all humanitarians and societies working in this field from around the world to join their efforts and exchange knowledge and updates in addition to promote and develop new humanitarian techniques and speed the response to emergencies and catastrophes occurring across the globe.

Dr. Madani, accompanied by Gerhard Putman Cramer, discussed with Moller the scientific programme of the 13th DIHAD conference. Moller appraised the topics that will be discussed in the agenda of next year, and further applauded the efforts exerted by the organisers of DIHAD for the past 12 years.
