Health

By default, health is a sector in constant evolution. Though Lebanon has among the best hospitals and physicians of the region, there are still big disparities between the public and the private sector.

The country must take the time to meet international standards and above all, to grant access for all to the proper health care. Before the war, Lebanon was considered to have the best health care in the region. However other countries in the region have improved their health care systems considerably while Lebanon was going through hard times.

The access to care costs are among the highest in the region which obviously makes it difficult to re-attract Arab patients. Programs have been implemented in order to attribute accreditation to hospitals meet and follow international standards. The entire sector is under the supervision of the Ministry of Public Health. Though medicine is mainly imported, some production units are established in the country.

Intensive care and treatment do not represent the whole health sector; the emergence of plastic surgery in Lebanon and the interest that Lebanese surgeons have shown in this speciality are attracting more and more patients from Lebanon and abroad.

The paramedical sector is also very active and this segment is probably one of the most profitable. Due to the special care that the Lebanese are giving to their well being and to the sustained domestic demand, importers have extended their market to neighbouring countries where the growth potential for para-pharmaceutical products is still very high.

Lebanon boasts the highest rate of physicians per capita in the Middle East, and treatment in every speciality is available in the country. Universities train very skilled physicians and investments have been made in order to lower the health care price level. Recovering the health sector's positive image to foreigners that prevailed before the war is a challenge that may never be achieved. However above all, health is a right and nobody will deny that accessing it is more important that material benefiting from it.
