Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ministry of Health (MOH) is a major government organization in Saudi Arabia. In 1925, the country established its first public health department in the town of Makkah. The department built hospitals and healthcare centers across the country, and issued and enforced regulations to guarantee adequate standards for practicing medicine and pharmacology. The government also created a public health council to address the growing need for healthcare services—including care for a steadily growing number of Hajj pilgrims who visit Makkah throughout the year. This council was the highest-level supervisory board, overseeing all aspects of the country’s healthcare, including hospitals and healthcare centers nationwide.
Eventually, the country’s population growth required a large-scale, specialized, government organization to manage Saudi Arabia’s health affairs. Established in 1951, the Ministry of Health (MOH) is committed to providing citizens with world-class healthcare services by developing appropriate legislation. The organization regulates the government and private healthcare sectors, monitors healthcare institutions’ performance, and conducts research and academic training in the field of healthcare investments.
