Urbanization, aging demographics and a rising burden of chronic diseases will rapidly boost the demand for healthcare in the Middle East and North Africa region. The growth in the healthcare sector is driven by the private sector as governments are trying to diversify their economies and reduce vulnerability to oil price volatility. Due to these factors, the private sector is likely to take on some of the healthcare burden, including projects through public-private partnerships.
Most Gulf Cooperation Council residents used to seek treatment in India, Singapore and Thailand. However, the UAE and other Gulf countries are now trying to reverse that trend by promoting medical tourism as an economic driver in the coming years.
These drivers and more will be discussed at the MENA Hospital Projects Forum, which will take place June 9-10 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. More than 250 delegates including senior government officials, project owners, developers, healthcare industry experts and key stakeholders will participate. The forum will also focus on the growing opportunities in the U.S. $243.6-billion healthcare sector that needs additional hospital beds, doctors, nurses, paramedics and pharmacists in the MENA region.
More than 30 speakers, representing 30+ sponsors and exhibitors from 15 countries will be discussing new hospital projects and how this would benefit the healthcare service providers and suppliers. The two-day conference will shed light on new technology in healthcare, project intelligence, business opportunities for healthcare operators, as well as changes in the region’s healthcare landscape will be debated.
Some of the key themes that will come up for discussions, include – MENA region healthcare infrastructure development vision and plans; hospital new project showcases and ongoing project updates; hospital expansion, refurbishment, and digitation projects and overview of the latest and advanced hospital technologies, equipment and furniture, etc.
