Kuwait Health

Kuwait’s rapidly changing demographic profile and increased prosperity have given rise to various lifestyle changes that have fuelled a rise in the prevalence of non-communicable diseases. To counter this, and to free up public resources for healthy living initiatives, the government is encouraging greater private sector involvement in the sector, starting with provision of health care for expatriates. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health is in the process of upgrading nine hospitals at a total estimated cost of KD1.25bn ($4.31bn). Two projects – the Al Razi Hospital and the Amiri Hospital – are already under construction, and seven others are to break ground in the next few years.
