Demand Projections

Health services in the Emirate stabilized in 2009 – with the exception of ER encounters –following significant increases in 2007 due to the introduction of mandatory health insurance for Expatriates and Thiqa for Nationals in 2008. Significant growth in demand for services relating to chronic diseases, e.g. diabetes, is expected, with larger volume increases in outpatient settings. It is, however, estimated that there will also be aggressive growth in inpatient services relating to both diabetes and cancer.
