Dr Safa Azaat Al Mustafa

Front line hero Dr. Safa Azaat Al Mustafa is most well known as the first Emirati to be assigned as the Chief Nursing and Allied Health Officer at Sheikh Khalifa Medical City in Abu Dhabi. But it was only during the years of COVID-19 that the crucial role of her field of work – nursing – shone to the fore.

As a pioneer in a business and Emirati society, she has led by example by training, guiding, and coaching hundreds of nurses at her hospital in Abu Dhabi. Her vision is to see many more nationals take on roles in nursing, hoping that the pandemic inspired many Emirati men — as they remain a minority — to take on the torch for bringing good health and inspiring lives.
