Health Vision 2050

"Health Vision 2050" is an attempt to visualize how we would like our health system to be in future until the year 2050. Predicting the future of health care delivery can be fraught with uncertainty and risk, especially with the number of determinants that affect health care: demographic, political, economic, social, technological, environmental and legal. Health Vision 2050 describes the vision for health system development over the coming 40 Years. It provides a review of the current health system in Oman as the basis for the development of a long-term health vision for 2050. The aim of Health Vision 2050 is for the Omani people to live healthy and productive lives, through the establishment of a well-organized, equitable, efficient and responsive health system, grounded by societal values of equity and social justice.

Synopsis of Strategic Studies,, Health Vision 2050

The current volume compiles synopsis of 8 strategic studies; namely “Human Resources for Health”, “Primary Health Care”, “Health Care Quality”, “Non-Communicable Diseases”, “Health Promotion”, “Nutrition”, “Elderly Health Care” and “Medical Technology” . The information and analysis contained theses strategic studies are intended to complement the “Health Vision 2050” main document and the “Health Atlas” and will act as resource studies for developing the coming Five-Year Health Development Plans

Health Atlas

The Health Atlas is a scientific instrument developed from “Health Vision 2050” to provide health planners and decision makers with various studies and scientific data that are accessible when executing the long-term health vision plan. The Health Atlas also shows the number of healthcare institutes in the various Governorates of Oman and provides an estimate of the number of needed workforce or human resources required to match the developmental pace of the health of the country to compare favorably with those in developed countries. The Atlas also provides a glimpse into some of the major medical equipment needed to provide advanced and state-of-the-art health care.

Ninth Five Year Plan

“Health Vision 2050” is developed to visualize how the health system in Oman would look like in the future and until the year 2050. Predicting the future of health care delivery can be fraught with uncertainty and risk. It was, thus, necessary to analyze extensively the status of the Omani health system, the morbidity and mortality in the population, the challenges facing the health system and the expected future developments and changes in the population including macro-social and macro-economic changes. Extensive efforts were made to analyze the status of the health system and the surrounding circumstance in which the health system functions. Ministries and organizations related to health including the Parliament and State Council prepared working papers and a number of national workshops were conducted to discuss and describe views on the current and probable future determinants of health outcomes. “Health Vision 2050”, the working papers and the strategic studies include enormous information and analysis of health status and health system as well as actions for future improvements in health status and enhancing performance of health system.

Policy and Strategy Development Guideline with Health Lens

There is an increasing national and global awareness of the need to complement any care service with effective public policies and strategies. The Directorate General of Planning and Studies developed this user-friendly policy and strategy development guideline to help managers to use modern, hands on methods, tools and techniques needed to increase the institutional effectiveness and efficiency through systems-wide improvement that can be sustained. This guideline provides self-directed learning covering the major issues in policy and strategy development. It is aimed for the planners and managers at various levels of any system who wish to improve their skills in navigating, developing and managing the policies and strategies. The planners and managers wish to understand how issue get onto policy agendas, how policy makers treat evidence and why some policy initiatives are implemented while other failed. The guideline describes a systematic stepwise approach to develop policies and strategies and simplifies the tasks according to the nature and context of the theme. I encourage the users of this guideline to be vigilant and receptive to adapt it according to their settings and circumstances.
