Recent study: Dubai's total fertility rate in 2016 at 5.2 for nationals and 1.7 for non-national women
IVI Middle East Fertility Clinic says breakthrough infertility treatments contributing to emirate’s steady population increase
Dubai, UAE, 30 December 2017: The latest statistical report released by Dubai Health Authority (DHA) notes the steadily booming population of Dubai, considered the UAE’s largest and most populous emirate. According to the DHA report entitled ‘Dubai Annual Health Statistical Report 2016,’ in 2016, the total fertility rate (TFR), or the average number of children a woman would have during her reproductive years, in the emirate was 5.2 per woman for nationals - which correlates with the emirate’s goals – and 1.7 for non-national women. A total of 31,887 live births were recorded in Dubai during the same period, making a Crude Birth Rate (CBR) of 12.4 per 1,000 population.
IVI Middle East Fertility Clinic said various fundamental factors can be attributed to the steady population increase. Among these, it said, are breakthrough medical treatments designed to address the growing fertility issues facing many Dubai couples today.
Prof. Dr. Human Fatemi, Subspecialist Reproductive Medicine & Reproductive Surgery, Medical Director, IVI Middle East Fertility Clinic, said: “Infertility is becoming increasingly common not just in Dubai and the UAE but the rest of the region as well, and prompting couples to seek medical assistance to help them with their reproductive concerns is becoming more and more imperative.
