Currently at around AED64 billion, healthcare spending in the UAE is growing approximately 12.5% a year and is a major focus for the government. Key drivers include an increasing population, a greater prevalence of diseases like hypertension and diabetes linked to a sedentary lifestyle, a growing focus on preventative medicine, and demand for specialist services. The UAE is also emerging as a focus for regional health tourism.

All of this makes the UAE a highly attractive environment for healthcare providers, both local and foreign-owned. In particular, UAE-based healthcare providers stand to benefit from the early adoption of innovative medical technologies and procedures.
