Bus schedule flapping, sweat dripping and panic rising. My first scenes in the Italian capital are not even close to the glamorous montage I had envisioned when planning “Rome Alone”. My first solo travel venture is, strictly speaking, a work trip, but I don’t let that small detail get in the way of my quest for soul-searching and general worldliness. I have visions of gliding down the Spanish Steps in a floaty dress and floppy hat,...

Although half the world’s population is female, “femtech” – products and services catering to women’s health and wellness – has long been considered by tech giants as too niche. But with the market projected to grow by more than 13 percent annually, reaching $75 billion by 2027, it appears that femtech’s moment has finally arrived. The question now is whether the industry will capitalize on the opportunity. The term femtech was coined in 2016 by Ida Tin, cofounder and CEO of the menstrual...

We’ve all read — and tried to ignore — the headline-grabbing surveys laden with worryingly dismal outlooks for our health. The most recent tranche of bad news suggested the UAE has one of the highest rates of both cardiovascular disease and diabetes in the world. Half of heart attack patients here are under 50. As Dr Asma Deeb, the president of the International Society for Paediatric and Adolescent Diabetes, pointedly warned at a conference in...

Doctors and health professionals are warning UAE residents to do their research before choosing medicated weight-loss like Wegovy and Ozempic. There is no doubt that the UAE is in the midst of a different kind of pandemic, with 25 percent of men and 30 percent of women classed as obese, according to data compiled by the Global Obesity Observatory. In 2021, the weight-loss market in the UAE reached US$960 million, a number expected to reach $1,430...

If you’ve strolled through Mall of The Emirates in Dubai in the last six months, a shiny new store just across from Harvey Nichols may have caught your eye. Looking like a cross between an art gallery and an Apple Store, there’s just one product for sale inside.
