Improved Health for People with Multiple Chronic Diseases


​​Plans for ‘Multiple Chronic Conditions’ aim to empower this group of patients with the knowledge and skills to better manage their conditions and prevent unnecessary hospitalization and emergency visits. The plans also aim to improve epidemiological data collection and analysis and provide patients with seamless coordinated care by healthcare professional who are trained to manage this high risk group.

We will enable self-care for patients with multiple chronic conditions through integrated and access​ible services, to enable them to live dignified, independent and healthy lives.


Who constitutes this priority population?

Citizen and long-term residents that have been diagnosed with more than one chronic condition(s).


Why is this population a priority?

The prevalence of people with multiple chronic conditions is increasing. This is due partly to the increasing age of the population, and also the high prevalence of unhealthy lifestyle choices, such as smoking, physical inactivity and poor dietary habits. It has been established that chronic conditions constitute a majority of the causes for mortality and morbidity in Qatar, accounting for 69% of deaths in 2014.


What is our target by 2022?

20% improvement in patient empowerment of people with chronic conditions, by 2022.
