Abstract
Social responsibility (SR) has become an essential corporate practice across most organizations. The primary concept of being socially responsible is to ensure that industries engage in ethical operations and in a manner that benefits the surrounding communities. The objective of the current report was to assess the social responsibilities of the health industry in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Based on recent reviews; the study findings show increased awareness of being socially responsible across various hospital centers. Most facilities undertake regular voluntary care, creation of community awareness about health matters, and undertaken free medical screening during medical camps. However, the uptake of social responsibilities in Abu Dhabi is still low as some health care facilities continue to face funding problem. Other facilities lack the SR strategy in their business models further disadvantaging surrounding communities especially persons that are financially challenged to access regular medical care. In light of the current observations, the health industry in Abu Dhabi needs to do more needs in terms of policy change, partnering with the government, and seeking budgetary support to support social activities in Abu Dhabi on a regular basis
