With a focus on improving access to healthcare, modernizing facilities and equipment, and enhancing the role of private sector investment, Saudi Arabia’s healthcare system is undergoing a transformation to meet the needs of every member of society.

From tele-medicine consultations to data-driven treatment plans and enhanced traffic safety, the Health Sector Transformation Program is dedicated to ensuring a long, healthy and productive life for everyone in the Kingdom.

The Healthcare Sector Transformation Program is transforming the Kingdom's healthcare system to be more comprehensive, effective, and integrated than ever before. This enhanced system prioritizes innovation, financial sustainability, and disease prevention while improving access to healthcare. It also focuses on expanding e-health services and digital solutions, improving the quality of care, and adhering to international standards.

The Program's strong cooperation and integration with government entities enabled Saudi Arabia to swiftly and effectively address the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the use of mobile applications, streamlined vaccine protocols, and increased access to medical services, the Kingdom was a global model of excellence in successfully mitigating 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.
