With a growing population and a rise in the incidence of non-communicable diseases placing greater demands on health services, efforts are being made to boost capacity in Kuwait’s health care services. As some $3.2bn in projects are planned, the private sector can look forward to a greater number of partnerships with the government. Efforts to tackle lifestyle diseases will intensify, especially as privatisation frees up new resources to be dedicated to Kuwaiti nationals and as public awareness of the issue rises. This chapter contains an interview with Qais Marafie, CEO, Kuwait Life Sciences Company.
