As a part of the program, the government covers the medical expenses of the citizens and domestic workers, while the employers are expected to cover the insurance of the expatriates. Similarly, Oman and Kuwait have also initiated the process of mandating health insurance in their respective countries. Moreover, growing health consciousness among individuals is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. There has been an increasing prevalence of obesity and diabetes, owing to the sedentary lifestyle led by the majority of the working population in the region.
