Three in four Indian, Asian and Arab expatriates living in Dubai possess no expat health insurance, according to the first Dubai Household Health survey.
The research, carried out by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) in partnership with the Dubai Statistics Centre, surveyed more than 5,000 people in the emirate and found just 23 per cent of the bottom fifth of wage earners had adequate expat medical insurance.
DHA chief executive of policy and strategy Laila al Jassmi said the figures on access to healthcare would be useful in shaping policy.
"Initially, the survey has shown there is quite a large percentage of people not covered by health insurance," she commented.
"People need at least a minimum coverage."
The head of one of the largest private hospital groups in Dubai has called on the government to make medical insurance cover compulsory.
David Hadley, chief executive of Emirates Healthcare and Medi-Clinic Middle East, made the comments at the second Arabian Business Economic Forum in the emirate earlier this week, Arabian Business reported.
