One of the most rapidly expanding markets in the region in recent years, Dubai’s health care sector is set for further growth, driven by an expanding and ageing population, changing medical needs and a determination by the government to provide all citizens with the best possible health care. Both inpatient and outpatient markets are widely forecast to see double-digit expansion in the run-up to 2022, while subsectors such as medical tourism continue to gain momentum. At the same time, investment in new technologies is gathering pace, with Dubai seek¬ing to become a global leader in high-tech medical applications and digital services, like telemedicine. This chapter contains an interview with Humaid Al Qutami, Director-General, Dubai Health Authority.
