Challenges Facing the Initiative:

  • The increase of demand in healthcare workforce providers and staff. 
  • The inequitable distribution of the current healthcare workforce between the different regions of Saudi Arabia 
  • The lack of strategic plans to balance the number of professionals in the healthcare sector which leads to inefficient spending of funds on training and education.
  • The increase of reliance on expatriate health professionals while the number of unemployed citizens in healthcare sector is increasing   
  • The lack of balance between the educational curriculums and the demand of workforce in the healthcare sector.
