"Jordan is a small but strategically located country in the Middle East, which borders Israel, Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Although it lacks the oil reserves of many of its neighbours and is relatively poor in comparison, it boasts good links with the West and is a key player on the regional political scene.
Both the government and private sector are committed to upgrading and modernising Jordanâ€™s healthcare provision. The country has a reputation in the region for its high standards of services provided. New public and private hospitals have been expanding and upgrading in recent years, providing good opportunities for companies in the provision of medical equipment.
There is little in the way of domestic production although there are a number of local manufacturers producing basic medical equipment and consumables, including Arab Medical & Scientific Alliance, Burgan Drugstores, Jordan Medicare Corporation and Medeast Import and Consultancy Agency.
