Partnerships with Civil Society Organizations

​The Community Participation Program is one of MOH’s initiatives that target activating all elements of society to contribute to healthy development, as well as open new horizons between the ministry and society to improve citizens’ health. MOH launched the Community Participation Program in line with the Saudi Vision 2030.

 It acts as a catalyst that contributes to health development. It does that by creating and implementing effective and sustainable partnerships between MOH and all elements of society. The program aims to direct community resources to priority fields. 

Moreover, it seeks to facilitate community contribution to health development by organizing and encouraging charity in the health care field. It also aims to develop the health volunteer system for health practitioners, build the capacities of private and non-profit health entities and encourage their expansion, as well as reinforce community initiatives for individuals in the field of health. Some of the initiatives and agreements concluded by MOH:
  • The Community Empowerment Initiative​, whose role is to empower community members in the health reinforcement process.

This aims to deepen the pioneering role of primary health care. This type of health care aims to enhance the concept of self-care among community members. It is line with the national transformation initiatives and the Saudi Vision 2030.
