Abu Dhabi Health 2013
The introduction of compulsory medical coverage and a significant population increase have fuelled the growth of Abu Dhabi’s health care sector in recent years, with a number of new facilities opening. This expansion is expected to continue, with both the government and the private sector planning new hospitals for the near future. Indeed, although efforts continue to expand the private sector’s participation in the industry, government subsidised facilities still accounted for 74% of inpatient encounters in 2011. Meanwhile, the implementation of mandatory coverage is reshaping the sector; about 98% of UAE nationals and foreign workers living in Abu Dhabi have medical insurance, a rate that is unparalleled in the GCC region.
