Health Sector
Transformation Program

With an emphasis on enhancing healthcare accessibility, modernizing facilities and equipment, and amplifying the influence of private sector investments, Saudi Arabia's healthcare system is undergoing a metamorphosis to cater to the requirements of every individual in society. From telemedicine consultations to data-centric treatment plans and improved traffic safety, the Health Sector Evolution Program is committed to ensuring a lengthy, healthy, and productive life for every resident in the Kingdom.

ABOUT Project

The Healthcare Sector Evolution Program is revolutionizing the Kingdom’s healthcare system, making it more comprehensive, effective, and integrated than ever before. This refined system prioritizes innovation, financial sustainability, and disease prevention while advancing healthcare accessibility. It also emphasizes the expansion of e-health services and digital solutions, elevating the quality of care and aligning with international standards.

The Program’s robust collaboration and integration with governmental bodies empowered Saudi Arabia to promptly and effectively combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Utilizing mobile applications, streamlined vaccine protocols, and increased availability of medical services, the Kingdom emerged as a global benchmark for successfully containing the spread of the virus.

From remote surgeries guided by top physicians to virtual consultations resulting in seamless prescriptions, the Kingdom is leading the charge in utilizing technology to revolutionize the delivery of healthcare services with ease and efficiency. Launched in 2022, the SEHA Virtual Hospital is the largest of its kind globally, connecting over 150 hospitals with more than 30 specialized health services.

The Program is also improving public health and preventing diseases. This is a crucial area of investment for the health and productivity of individuals and communities, as prevention is often more cost effective than illness and injury treatment.

The private sector is vital in supporting the Kingdom’s efforts to achieve its national health goals, ensuring everyone has access to high-quality healthcare.

The Health Sector Transformation Program prioritizes the well-being of Saudis through the personalization, digitalization and restructuring of the healthcare system.
