Special Report: Healthcare

How is Lebanon's healthcare system doing and what options exist to increase its functionality?

A special report published by Executive Magazine for Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, Lebanon Office.


Health is a fundamental public good that benefits everyone, irrespective of their socioeconomic status. A healthy population is a productive population, and a healthy population is a resilient population. Within the region, Lebanon has a long history of delivering high-quality healthcare to its citizens, possessing a robust network of public and private hospitals staffed with exceptionally trained doctors and nurses.

However, Lebanon's healthcare system is currently struggling with numerous challenges. The country's economic crisis has led to a decline in the accessibility and quality of healthcare services. Public hospitals are struggling to provide essential care, and many private hospitals are forced to shut down.

There is agreement across the board that these challenges need to be addressed. Yet, Lebanon’s healthcare system faces an uncertain future. The collaboration between the government and the private sector offers a way to overcome these obstacles and deliver (again) top-notch healthcare services to its citizens.

In this Special Report for Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Lebanon, Executive Magazine thoroughly examines the current state of Lebanon's healthcare system. This comprehensive analysis sheds light on the situation at hand and explores whether and how the healthcare sector could thrive amidst the prevailing chaos. By delving into these critical issues, the report aims to provide valuable insights and contributes to the ongoing discussions surrounding the future of healthcare in Lebanon.
