Healthy Children and Adolescents


​ Plans for 'Healthy C​hildren and Adolescents' aim at improving nutrition and healthy lifestyles, reducing dental caries and obesity, maintaining high rates of vaccinations, increasing the rates of breastfeeding and improving pediatric services.

We will provide practical help to parents, teachers and care givers to create healthy environments for children to live, learn and play, allowing for happier childhoods and a stronger and healthier Qatar.


Who are Children and Adolescents?

Our children are the future, and in order to give them a chance at a healthier life, we must change and strengthen our approach to providing a healthy and safe environment for them.
