Health

Bahrain Health 2012
The Bahraini government is working to create favourable conditions for encouraging growth in the private sector and is taking steps to shift the state’s role from provider to regulator. The promotion of the health care sector is in line with the priorities set forth in Economic Vision 2030. Accordingly, the state has undertaken and made plans for a number of initiatives to expand and upgrade the existing public health care facilities. In addition to expansion of existing facilities, the private sector is building new hospitals and other facilities, partially in response to growing demand for medical tourism. The Kingdom is also looking to train more Bahraini doctors and reduce dependence on expatriate medical staff. The opening of King Hamad University Hospital (KHUH) in December 2011 is expected to provide opportunities for local students to gain practical experience.
