How are healthcare services Kuwait?
When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Kuwait, they replied:
"Healthcare services in Kuwait are provided by both public and private institutions. The public healthcare system is funded by the government and is available to all citizens and foreign residents. The quality of public healthcare is generally good, with a wide range of services available, including primary care, specialist care, and hospital services. Foreign residents have access to the public healthcare system, although they may need to pay for some services. Expats in Kuwait can use the public healthcare system, but they may need to pay for some services. In addition, many expats opt to use private healthcare services, which offer more comprehensive coverage and better quality of care," commented one expat who moved to Kuwait.
