National Cancer Strategy

62 recommendations were made within the strategy: these ranged from the development of a National Cancer Screening Service for Qatar to the implementation of palliative care for cancer patient. To date the program has delivered full implementation of 27 recommendations, with a further 28 progressing well. These include the implementation of access targets to ensure patients are seen more quickly, an increase in cancer awareness and the introduction of multi-disciplinary teams in the treatment of cancers.

As the National Health Strategy Program 2011-2016 draws to a close, project information is currently being updated and will be available in the coming weeks.

For enquiries please contact the Program Management Office at the Ministry of Public Health.
