Kuwait City - Health system
Basic healthcare is available in government clinics located in community centres which are invariably situated next to the local co-operative supermarket within an area. Referrals are made from these clinics to specialists. Kuwait has a very high standard of public healthcare and some of the most comprehensively-equipped facilities in the region. Every resident expatriate has the right to access to public healthcare.
Private healthcare is excellent and comes at a price; however, those attending the private facilities are invariably covered by private health insurance.
