Almost all of these are imported at high cost. The blockade of Qatar seems to affect the health-care system by affecting the internal operations and other services.
Aims: This study aims to highlight the factors affecting laboratory and pharmacy services during the blockade. Its purpose is also to reveal the weaknesses that are influencing the internal operations of pharmacies and laboratories. The overall goal is to make recommendations that could improve Qatar's economic competitiveness in relation to the health sector and not the hydrocarbon industry with or without the blockade.
Methodology: Qualitative methods are used such as a series of literature reviews because the blockade figures are confidential.
Finding: The blockade had limited impact on the health care expenditure internal in Qatar. Combined with the low inflation rate and increase levels of import for the pharmaceutical supplies, it seems that the quality and scope of the health care service was not affected. By embargo.
