Jordon Health

Jordan’s health care spending as a proportion of GDP was 9.8% in 2012, a high figure by regional standards. Just over 40% of the population has health coverage from the Civil Health Insurance Programme, while 27% have military-provided insurance. Currently, private health coverage stands at 9% but the sector is witnessing a wave of expansion driven by the need for additional capacity. Meanwhile, Jordan’s medical tourism sector continues to grow making Jordan the leading medical tourism destination in the Middle East with around 255,000 patients coming for treatment in 2013, up from 240,000 in 2012 and 180,000 in 2009.
