Health & Education

Jordan Health Education

With a long history of advanced surgery, a well-established medical tourism industry and more than 60 private hospitals and clinics, the health care sector in Jordan has long been regarded as a regional example of excellence. For many years, the kingdom has been more advanced than most other countries in the Middle East by many international health indicators, but the escalating emergency and humanitarian situations in neighbouring countries have posed a number of challenges for the sector. The education sector meanwhile has been a cornerstone of Jordan’s development, and the country has spent many years pursuing reforms to prepare the foundations of a knowledge economy.

This chapter contains interviews with Dr Fawzi Al Hammouri, Chairman, Private Hospitals Association; and Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, President, Royal Scientific Society.
