New arrangements with foreign education institutions look set to improve the standards of medical care at state-run facilities in Kuwait.
Expatriate medical insurance provided by the government is essential for those who have chosen to live in the country, as without it, they are unable to get medical attention from state-owned hospitals and clinics.
According to the Global Arab Network, healthcare development is a key priority in the Arab state and the Ministry of Health recently signed a five-year arrangement with Johns Hopkins Medicine International, with the aim of raising standards at four of the nation's public hospitals specialising in secondary care.
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office advises having a comprehensive international medical insurance policy in place before travelling to Kuwait and notes there are "several good hospitals" that operate under the state medical service.
Encouraging development of private sector healthcare is also on the agenda and Waleed Al Falah, assistant undersecretary for planning and quality at the ministry, was quoted by OBG as saying it wants to view the private industry as "as a partner and not a competitor".
