Oman’s health care system increasingly ready to meet the population’s needs

This article provides an assessment of the cost of the public health care sector in Oman.  Costs are increasing steadily as the country has a universal health care system continues to expand free primary health care to Omanis and subsidized care for the foreign population of the sultanate. The authors suggest that future public health care investment will need to continue to rise in order to match the rising demand.
