The SCH is the steward of the health of Qatar’s people.  It has the dual mandate to develop policies and programs to improve the people’s health so that they may enjoy longer and more productive lives, and to lay the foundation for a vibrant country for decades to come. 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. Another key SCH function is oversight of the quality and effectiveness of service delivered by primary care and hospital and other public and private sector health service providers to ensure that standards are met and performance targets achieved. The SCH has a special role to play in ensuring that the public health of the country receives adequate attention. It oversees public health programs related to the control of infectious diseases, and coordinates with other agencies on environmental and public safety promotion. It is also our responsibility to ensure that the nation is prepared for any public health emergency. The SCH does not provide clinical services.  Instead our goal is to vest responsibility for care in the hands of public institutions such as Hamad Medical Corporation and the private sector while regulating, monitoring, and evaluating this care against agreed upon outcomes to ensure that acceptable quality of care is provided.   The SCH is committed to establishing an environment that promotes quality and wellness through wise policies in such areas as health insurance, information technology, licensure and credentialing and continuing medical education.
