The Healthcare System:- In 2014, UAE healthcare expenditures represented only 3 percent of the GDP compared to Saudi Arabia with 4.6 percent and Egypt with 5.2 percent.-69 percent of healthcare expenditure comes from the public budget and 31 percent from private sources.-Healthcare costs are expected to rise by about 30 to 40 percent in the coming years.- Healthcare in the UAE can be divided into 3 main sections: Abu Dhabi (Southern Section), Dubai (Central section), and Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah (the Northern Section).
Reforms will center around the following:
- Reducing capacity gaps.- Improving the quality of care- Attracting and retaining a qualified staff- Ensuring balanced cost/benefit practices and sustainability in healthcare expenditure
- Factors like rapid population growth, an expanding middle class, increased life expectancy rates and a government focus on the expansion of healthcare (turning the country into a medical tourism hub for the Middle East) all contribute to the promising healthcare market landscape in the UAE.
- The UAE government is taking measures to introduce programs and incentives to encourage private sector growth, optimize current operations, and leverage technology where possible.
-Public/private partnerships (PPP's) are encouraged and well subsidized by the UAE government.
