Dubai, UAE: GIG Gulf, a leading insurance provider in the MENA region, has successfully concluded the fourth edition of MyWellness Week, its annual flagship event focusing on the wellbeing of its health policy members.

The 2024 MyWellness Week, an online event held from 27-30 May, aimed to inspire and educate participants on holistic wellbeing. For the first time, it extended beyond GIG Gulf members to include participants from Jordan, Kuwait, and KSA within the GIG Group network. Aligned with the UAE’s National Strategy for Wellbeing 2031, this year's event focused on promoting preventative healthcare solutions through our Health on Track initiative.

“At GIG, healthcare insurance is far more than simply taking care of medical claims,” says Noor Saleh Abu Naaj, Regional Wellbeing & Engagement Strategy Manager at GIG Gulf. “Our Health on Track initiative aims to partner with our customers to improve their physical and mental wellbeing holistically, and our annual MyWellness Week – created to inspire our members to make positive changes to their lives - is a key element of the initiative.”

The core focus for this year’s event was preventative care, with content centred around a wide range of topics to promote wellbeing. For the event, GIG’s dedicated teams worked to curate a line-up of activities, workshops and discussions designed to enrich its members’ lives and offer motivation on their wellness journeys.

The agenda addressed critical wellness issues prevalent in the Middle East. Discussions ranged from the impacts of sleep and financial stress on overall wellbeing to the importance of self-love, managing relationships, and pursuing personal passion and purpose. The carefully designed activities and workshops ensured that attendees left with practical tools to implement in their daily lives and have a positive impact on their wellbeing.

“We are proud to continue MyWellness Week for the fourth year, an event dedicated to empowering our members in nurturing their wellbeing. We trust that the valuable tools and resources we provide throughout the week will further enhance our members experience and journey.,” Says Haytham El Halabi, Regional Head-Client Benefits, Network Management & Regulatory Affairs at GIG Gulf

Featuring 12 amazing expert speakers from around the world, the event attracted over 5,000 visits to the platform throughout the week. The engagement rate reached an impressive 90.70% with an overall rating of 92.20%, 66% of members who registered attended the event.
