Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/03/2014 -- As a percentage of GDP, healthcare expenditure is low, but in per capita terms, spending is among the top 30 in the world. Overall health expenditure is estimated to stand at US$16.3bn in 2013, equal to 4.1% of GDP. Per capita spending is US$1,984.
A wide range of public health facilities are run by the Ministry of Health, including hospitals, primary healthcare centres, school health and maternity & child health units. In addition, there are facilities run by other public sector bodies, including the Police and the Armed Forces. The private sector is far more active in the provision of primary care than hospital services.
The UAE is committed to improving its health sector and as such, is investing a significant amount in the construction and renovation of health facilities. Private sector investment is also playing a key role in the development of the UAE's healthcare provision. New facilities include DM Healthcare's plans to open two specialist hospitals by 2014; Dubai's specialist paediatric hospital, which is on target to open in late 2013; a new hospital and teaching facility in Dubai Healthcare City; and plans to open a second branch of Abu Dhabi's largest private hospital in Mohammed Bin Zayed City.
