The soaring population in the Middle East makes meeting healthcare needs particularly pressing in the region, presenting diverse challenges for governments and private entities alike. Key healthcare issues include addressing immediate, acute infrastructure needs; meeting regulatory requirements; attracting and retaining human capital; and developing a viable, long-term plan for healthcare financing. To meet these challenges, healthcare providers must develop innovative strategies that are aligned with their capabilities and market demands.

Our thought leadership
GCC health providers can use customized whole-person care models (WPCMs) to care for subpopulations that are at disproportionate risk of, or suffering from, non-communicable diseases. WPCMs have five elements: a care coordinator, a multidisciplinary healthcare team, care collaborators, informatics, and incentive structures.
The GCC is confronting near epidemic levels of non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular and respiratory illnesses, cancer, and diabetes. Governments urgently need to introduce a range of new and effective policies to curb these diseases’ prevalence, otherwise the economic burden that they impose will reach $68 billion in 2022.
To better understand both the challenges faced by the global pharmaceutical industry in its pursuit of emerging-market opportunities and the strategies that leaders are employing to address them, Strategy& surveyed executives from more than 25 of the top pharmaceutical and generics companies, other industry experts, and members of Strategy&’s global pharmaceutical practice.
Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries can use public-private partnerships as a means of managing rising healthcare costs, as a mechanism to enhance the capabilities of the healthcare system, and as part of a program of systemic transformation of the sector.
