Abstract

The increasing burden of disease in Kuwait is likely to raise demand for health funding. As current health spending is financed almost exclusively from oil revenues, the state’s ability to meet growing demand will be dependent on either growing oil revenues at the same rate, reducing spending in other sectors, rationing health service provision or improving the efficiency of health spending. As current evidence suggests that oil revenues may be declining, improvements in efficiency are likely to be sought and some prioritisation may be needed.
