Iraq's Growing Healthcare Business

The provision of healthcare is a priority in Iraq, with the government allocating an estimated $5 billion annually to cover it, and creating three committees to work on a new draft healthcare law.

So far this year, we've seen several initiatives in the sector, including:

  • USAID and the Iraqi Ministry of Health hosting the Second Annual Conference of Primary Health Care and Preventive Medicine in Baghdad in February;
  • The Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) announcing the development of two new clinics for pilgrims in Najaf and Karbala;
  • Work starting on a $350-million project to build an integrated, modern 'medical city' in Baghdad;
  • Japan's Shimadzu winning a contract to supply X-ray equipment to the Iraqi government.

Iraq Business News is also pleased to have been selected as the official online media partner for the Iraq Healthcare Conference, which takes place in Erbil on 27th and 28th of May.
