Qatar has witnessed a substantial improvement in healthcare services in recent years thanks to the opening of modern hospitals and clinics that match high world quality standards. The Supreme Health Council (SHC) provides free healthcare services for nationals and low-cost medical treatment for non-nationals. SHC has initiated health insurance coverage for all the population in Qatar.
Qatar has a number of public, private hospitals and healthcare centers offering the most advanced medical equipment and an elite of highly qualified staff. The Health sector in Qatar has significantly expanded lately as a part of the Qatar National Vision 2030. Hospitals, laboratories, pharmacies, and healthcare centers are regulated by the Supreme Council of Health.
Qatar health sector serves the population with a great number of pharmacies equipped with the best medical services and highly qualified pharmacists to provide independent medication advice. Some pharmacies are open throughout the week and around the clock.
