Dubai, United Arab Emirates -  September 30, 2019:   The Sultanate of Oman has made tremendous advancements in healthcare sector development during the past 43 years represented by the percentage and speedy reduction in mortality, especially childhood mortality. Thanks to the government's ‘Best HealthCare for all' motto, which was commended by the UN. 

With a growing total population of around 5 million, Oman's young population amounts to 13.9% children under 5 years and 33.7% under-15 years. The government's vision for the future focuses on healthy nutrition, growth monitoring and injury management in children.  As the total population of the country is expected to reach over 7 million mark by 2050, the governments are greatly concerned with their ability to adequately finance health care and ensure its sustainability in the face of escalating costs. In fact, healthcare is expected to be 8-10% of the GDP by 2030.

“There is an increasing focus on improving primary healthcare and cost-effective caregiving at all levels of healthcare in the region. When it comes to childcare, we can see that the Health Vision 2050 has delineated a number of priorities.
