Qatar Health

The large-scale investments of the past half-decade look set to continue driving Qatar’s health sector in 2016. With a rapidly rising population and household incomes well above the developed-world average, public and private sector outlays are on track to keep rising alongside a state-led push to raise quality and expand services. As the public sector enters a new cost-optimisation phase in the wake of the oil price drop, the government is increasingly looking to the private sector to fill areas of need, particularly those stemming from the rise of lifestyle-related diseases, such as diabetes and cancer.

This chapter contains an interview with Hanan Mohamed Al Kuwari, Minister of Public Health.
