Investment strategy: Dubai healthcare sector 2017-20
With the launch of its 2017–2020 health investment strategy, the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) aims to promote Dubai as a viable and competitive hub for need-based investment in healthcare. The strategy also aims to guide and support investors to build sustainable public-private partnership models in Dubai’s healthcare sector, which offers significant opportunities for investors.

In recent years, Dubai’s healthcare provider landscape has changed significantly, leading to an overcapacity for certain services. Some services and catchments have sufficient supply and some are crowded and pose a risk for overcapacity. There are gaps in a number of specialities and services.

Key areas of investment potential include innovations in models of primary care, centres of excellence in certain specialities, homebased care and rehabilitation services.

An ageing population, the rise of complex chronic conditions and emerging technological changes is changing the manner and type of care needed, creating opportunities over the next decade for companies that are quick to adapt to these changes.

Facilitating and supporting public-private partnerships will help improve Dubai’s health ecosystem. DHA will be able to bring in private sector investment in strategic projects.

Public-private partnerships are also beneficial to patients, as they give patients access to high quality clinical services and innovations in clinical services based on best-in-class international practices.

DHA has clearly laid out the areas of focus over the next 2 to 5 years, and it’s keen on providing the dedicated investment promotion and facilitation efforts to support priority investments in Dubai.
