Health Care

Bahrain’s health care system is universally free to all Bahraini citizens and is incredibly cheap for expatriates, but unlike most other Gulf States, Bahraini nationals form the majority of Bahrain’s physician and nursing staff. Both public and private hospitals alike are widespread throughout the country and the life expectancy of Bahrain is high as a result with the average as 73 years of age for men and 76 for women.

AIDS, HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria are nearly non-existent within the country and vaccination against TB and Hep B are sponsored strongly by the Ministry of Health. However, Bahrain’s obesity rate is incredibly high as around 29% of all men and over 38% of all women are classified as obese. In turn this has substantially boosted the rates of both diabetes and heart disease which sit at 5% and 32% of all deaths in the country. Additionally, around 18% of Bahraini nationals are carriers of sickle cell anaemia and 24% are carriers of thalassemia.

Transportation

As Bahrain had developed itself more and more rapidly, the transportation infrastructure has had to move forwards with it and in turn, over four thousand kilometres of roads have been built with around three thousand kilometres of them being paved. Additionally, multiple roads have been constructed to link together the nearby islands, as well as the four-lane King Fahd Causeway joining Bahrain to nearby Saudi Arabia and the planned Qatar-Bahrain Friendship Bridge, connecting Bahrain to Qatar.

Although there are no railways in Bahrain as of the moment, there are plans to connect the country to the rest of the Persian Gulf via railway as well as implementing a light rail network within Bahrain itself. There are two airports within the country, Bahrain International Airport and Isa Air Base (with 4 and 3.8 thousand kilometres of paved runways respectively), as well as a single heliport. Bahrain is also home to three harbours in Sitrah, Manama and Mina Salman which includes nine ships over 1,000 tons in weight (4 barge carriers, 4 containers and 1 petroleum tanker).
