Abstract:Kuwait is a wealthy, small country in the Gulf region and is facing many challenges in its healthcare sector. In the last couple of years an increasing pressure has been put on the health facilities.

The aim of this study was to explore the opportunities and barriers for Western firms seeking to develop business activities in the Kuwaiti healthcare sector. Therefore, the leading research question was formulated as: Which business development opportunities and barriers exist in the healthcare sector for Western firms in Kuwait?
