The SCH believe that Qatar has an opportunity to create a health care system that will provide the most effective and advanced health care to its people and to become a model for the world to follow. The heart of Qatar’s strategic vision for the future is helping people achieve their full potential, thereby benefiting the individuals, their families, the community and the nation. A healthy people served by an outstanding well-managed, health care system are essential to success and to achieving His and Her Highness’s vision for Qatar’s future. Currently, the SCH is embarking on an ambitious program to enhance the wellness of the people of Qatar so that a vibrant, healthy, and productive society can be established for today and for the future.  The essence of that program is ’Caring for the Future’. Caring for the Future means promoting public health, encouraging healthy lifestyles, providing community-based primary care, and ensuring that, when needed, some of the world’s most advanced and highest quality care is available in tertiary(which is) medical facilities.  These tertiary facilities will not only provide quality care but also are expected to be research leaders on the frontiers of science. The SCH will oversee and regulate the medical marketplace, promoting high quality care through use of the latest information technology and support of a health care financing program that provides access to all while establishing incentives for good resource stewardship.  The SCH will promote evidence- based policies that seek to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and their families, and will measure change against established objectives to be certain progress is being achieved. Under the guidance of his Highness the Emir of Qatar, the SCH was established in 2009 and given the responsibility to guide reform in Qatar in order to establish one of the world’s most admired and renowned health systems.  The SCH’s role 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.
