Health Sector Transformation Program

The program aims to restructure the health sector in the Kingdom to be a comprehensive, effective and integrated health system that is based on the health of the individual and society (including the citizen, the resident and the visitor). The program depends on the principle of value-based care, which ensures transparency and financial sustainability by promoting public health and preventing diseases, in addition to applying the new model of care related to disease prevention. It also aims to improve access to health services through optimal coverage and a comprehensive and equitable geographical distribution, expanding the provision of e-health services and digital solutions, as well as improving the quality of health services. It will focus upon the satisfaction of beneficiaries by implementing and following the best evidence-based international standards, establishing and enabling integrated health care systems that cover all regions of the Kingdom by activating meaningful procurement of services and enhancing societal awareness of traffic and safety. The Health Sector Transformation Program also works on harmonizing and coordinating between all health sector entities, VRPs and relevant government entities, in addition to aligning and linking with strategic national goals during the transformation journey.

The Health Sector Transformation Program was newly established for the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 and will be launched during 2022 to ensure continued development of healthcare services in the Kingdom and focus efforts in this vital sector. This is following the National Transformation Program’s achievement of accomplishments and strategic targets that upgraded the health sector to face challenges related to health services by increasing their quality and efficiency, and the levels of protection against health risks.

Considered one of the strategic dimensions of the National Transformation Program, efforts were exerted in developing the health sector by addressing the novel coronavirus pandemic. The VRPs have also played a key role in the Kingdom’s response to the health, economic and social impacts of the pandemic as well as overcoming the crisis and its challenges.

In the previous stage, the health sector has achieved many accomplishments, such as improving the quality and efficiency of health services and facilitating access to them through focusing on digitizing the health sector and launching a package of applications (Sehhaty and Mawid), and increasing the service coverage in all the Kingdom’s regions.

In light of the global health systems’ development, the Health Transformation Program will work on enabling comprehensive transformation in the sector and restructuring into a comprehensive, effective and integrated system, based on the health of the individual and the society. It will adopt the principle of value-based care that ensures transparency and improves health services to contribute to raising the satisfaction of beneficiaries. The program will focus on boosting public health and disease prevention, in addition to improving access to health services through optimal coverage, comprehensive and equitable geographical distribution, and expanding the provision of e-health services.
