A forensic analysis with statistics on national and regional health infrastructure and provision. An essential source of highly detailed business data
Saudi Arabia is the 43rd most populated country in the world, with a population of 29mn (according to estimates for 2012). Made up of nationals, an important expatriate population and an estimated 2mn illegal immigrants, Saudi Arabia's healthcare market is split between public and a growing private sector. It is also put to the test at key times in the Islamic calendar, when Muslim pilgrims travel to key holy sites across the country.
We have divided Saudi Arabia into five regions, and the key highlights from each region's healthcare market are outlined below:
Central region - The central region of Saudi Arabia - which we define as being formed of the province of Riyadh (home to the capital city, of the same name), Ha'il, and Qaseem, had an estimated population of 9.2mn in 2013. Riyadh, both the city and the province of the same name, is often a starting point for healthcare providers keen to enter the Saudi market. This means that Riyadh-based hospitals and clinics are often the first to gain access to innovative drugs, medical devices and treatments.
Eastern region - Saudi Arabia's eastern region - formed of just one province, is the economic heart of Saudi Arabia and home to the oil producing industry. The presence of the oil industry, and the eastern region's growing tourism sector, both have implications for healthcare provision - with the private sector gaining ground in this part of the country.
Northern region - Because of the low population density in this part of Saudi Arabia, and its distance from the wealthier parts of the country, such as oil-producing regions, the capital Riyadh, and the port at Jeddah, we expect that northern Saudi Arabia will be a low priority for investment in healthcare over the course of our five year forecast period.
Southern region - We define the southern region of Saudi Arabia as including four provinces, Aseer, Jazan, Najran and Al-Bahah. Unlike the rest of Saudi Arabia, the climate in the southern region is distinct: rather than a dry, desert climate, it has higher levels of rainfall, mountains, and the province of Aseer, which is on a plateau, is affected by the Indian monsoon. This facilitates agricultural production, and also contributes to a specific disease burden.
Western region - The largest region in terms of population, it is home to the important port city of Jeddah, on the Red Sea, and also has a distinct disease burden thanks to this region's popularity with Muslim pilgrims. Saudi Arabia's deputy minister of health estimated in October 2013 that nearly half of the pilgrims travelling to the country required medical assistance.
