31 Jan 2016
(MENAFN) Health care sector has been increasing upward of 10 percent per annum across MENA, with notable potential for growth in quality care over the next few years.
Moreover, need for quality care continues to overtake supply as GCC nations continue to rank amid the highest in the world on risk factors related to chronic lifestyle ailments like diabetes.
In addition, demand for specialized centers of excellence (COE) is increasing quickly as the load of disease moves from the public sector to the private one.
Developing more COEs regionally would support meeting unique needs and cut the need to travel overseas for treatment, and will bring in more medical tourists.
