Maternal and Newborn Health

The health challenges confronting women differ from those of men because of biological, social and economic factors. There are differences between women and men in the pattern of disease prevalence and associated risk factors. Primary Health Care Corporation is responding to Qatar’s need for a comprehensive women’s health program that targets the health challenges unique to women.The project focus is to develop an integrated national program for maternal and newborn health.

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.
