Enhanced Health Protection

The NHS 2018-2022 aims to protect the population from potential risks and threats, ensuring that Qatar is a safe place to live, work and visit.

What is Enhanced Health Protection?

Health protection is a dynamic and responsive process that aims to ensure healthy living and working conditions, as well as to prevent the transmission of communicable diseases and epidemics. This includes monitoring the safety and quality of food, water, air and the general environment, in addition to managing outbreaks, and other incidents that may threaten the public health, such as exposure to harmful chemicals or radiation.

Why is it a priority?

The health sector has the responsibility to ensure safe environment for the population and protect them from public health threats related to disease, outbreaks, infections, environment, chemicals, radiation, food, water, and national emergencies or disasters. Investing and planning in health protection will positively affect the entire population, decrease poor outcome related to these areas, and help control any potential negative consequences when incidents occur, and decrease associated costs if they occur.

What is our target by 2022?

Real-time systems in effect to ensure compliance with international health regulations for surveillance and response, to include supporting readiness for mass gatherings such as Qatar 2022 World Cup.
