Qatar’s health sector has undergone enormous expansion in recent years and today provides a full range of
high-quality healthcare services to more than 2.7 million people. In this decade alone we have opened nine
new hospitals in the public sector in addition to six new primary care health and wellness centers and numerous
private sector facilities.
A major part of this expansion has been in the provision of healthcare services, including specialist services for
children as we strive to provide the very best quality care to young people in Qatar.
Qatar’s health system has much to offer children – not only a wide range of world-class treatment services to
help them recover from ill-health, but also a growing range of wellness services to help your children stay
healthy and free from disease. But understanding how to access these services is the first step in realizing the
benefits of these services.
This guide provides you as a parent with all the information you need to help your child easily access the health
system and choose the right service for their healthcare needs.
