WHY SAUDI ARABIA, KUWAIT AND QATAR?

Although the size of the healthcare market in Saudi Arabia is significantly greater than that in Kuwait and Qatar, these three countries share many similarities, including growing populations and increasing rates of chronic disease. Each government has committed significant resources to modernize their respective healthcare systems. U.S. companies are well suited to help implement the next generation of healthcare delivery solutions needed in these markets.
