Investing in Abu Dhabi’s Healthcare Sector

Abu Dhabi’s healthcare sector is rapidly expanding, offering lucrative opportunities for investors under the UAE’s Federal Law on Foreign Direct Investment No. 16 for 2020, which allows 100% foreign ownership of healthcare facilities. The Department of Health – Abu Dhabi (DoH) supports this growth by providing essential guidelines and maintaining transparency in licensing. The updated Abu Dhabi Healthcare Capacity Master Plan (HCMP) outlines current and future market needs, guiding investors on strategic areas for development. With around 80% of healthcare facilities privately operated, the DoH ensures high standards and sustainable investments, enhancing patient experience and delivering value. This creates a dynamic investment landscape, aligning with the Emirate’s healthcare demands and promising long-term returns.
