The Sultanate of Oman has prioritised the development of robust health services with equitable access to medical care across the population including the remote mountainous areas. Healthcare is an universal right in Oman's Basic Law and is financed through natural resources. It is provided free of charge to all Omani citizens and government employed expatriates. Private sector expatriate workers are covered by private insurance.
The health services are overseen by the Omani Ministry of Health, established in 1971, which oversees a network of public and private general hospitals, polyclinics, primary care clinics and pharmacies across the country.
