His Highness the Emir created the Supreme Council of Health in 2005 and gave it responsibility to guide reform in Qatar in order to establish one of the world’s most admired and renowned health systems. The role of SCH is to create a clear vision for the nation’s health direction, set goals and objectives for the country, design policies to achieve the vision, regulate the medical landscape, protect the public’s health, set the health research agenda, and monitor and evaluate progress towards achieving those objectives.

The new Primary Healthcare strategy sets out recommendations that will transform care over the next five years. These include:
Supporting people to stay at home rather than be admitted to hospital.
A much greater focus on weight management and stopping smoking.
The establishment of a patient helpline for people to access health advice over the phone.
Continuity through a clear plan with the same clinicians for people with ongoing diseases.
A comprehensive programme of screening throughout people’s lives, to detect disease early.
