-Gradual economic increases are expected in the coming years, reaching almost 5 percent by 2017.

-69 percent of healthcare expenditure comes from the public budget and 31 percent from private sources.
-Healthcare costs are expected to rise by about 30 to 40 percent in the coming years.
- Healthcare in the UAE can be divided into 3 main sections: Abu Dhabi (Southern Section), Dubai (Central section), and Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah (the Northern Section).
Reforms will center around the following:
- Reducing capacity gaps.
- Improving the quality of care
