Holy City of Mecca

Monitoring healthcare services

More than three million Muslims travel to Mecca each year for the Hajj, their traditional ‘journey to the Holy City’. The Saudi authorities go through a lot of effort to ensure safety during the pilgrimage. The Saudi Ministry of Health, for instance, uses various methods to raise awareness, such as installing displays and mobile billboards throughout the city, distributing leaflets, and messaging on TV. On top of that, 21 hospitals (7,000-bed capacity) are made available to provide healthcare services, as well as countless ambulances. Together with trusted partners Barco and Samir Group, the Ministry even set up a dedicated command center, equipped with a Barco video wall, to monitor all medical services in Mecca (hospitals, ambulances, paramedics).
