Traverse Health Shares Key Insights on MENA from the Global HLTH Conference

We were excited to attend the HLTH HLTH Europe conference in Amsterdam last week. The event showcased a range of discussions on digital health innovations, women's health advancements, scaling healthcare solutions, and more.

At Traverse Health, our focus on data from both the EU and MENA regions made the Middle East summit on the final day particularly relevant for us. Here are some key takeaways from the sessions:

Disease Burden & Demographics

The MENA region faces unique healthcare challenges, including high rates of diabetes and heart disease, despite a relatively young population. This contrast underscores the importance of diverse datasets for creating effective healthcare strategies and interventions.

In response to these challenges, we've partnered with Acibadem Healthcare Group to compile a comprehensive dataset of over 40,000 patients with obesity and diabetes in the MENA region. For more insights into the patterns we've identified, visit our Use Case page.

Economic Growth & Healthcare Spending

Countries like Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Kuwait are experiencing significant economic growth and are increasing their investments in healthcare. This trend suggests strong future growth for the healthcare sector in the region.

Technological Advancements

The MENA region is undergoing a rapid digital transformation, with initiatives aimed at improving data management and digital health maturity. This marks a pivotal shift in healthcare delivery.

Insurance Sector Expansion

The health insurance landscape in the MENA region is evolving rapidly, with more beneficiaries and contributions to the GDP. This expansion reflects broader access to and enhanced coverage of healthcare services.

As we continue to explore these dynamic landscapes, Traverse Health is dedicated to driving positive change and innovation in healthcare across the MENA region and beyond.
