Policy briefing – 45mn

In partnership with the Ministry of Public Health, Hamad Medical Corporation and Primary Health Care Corporation.

In 2011, Qatar launched the First National Cancer Control Programme in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Critical to its success were robust governance structures, informed and committed leadership, and comprehensive involvement of all sectors. Future development will focus on consolidating areas of significant achievement and incorporating cutting-edge technologies. 

The Cancer Care policy briefing will review key lessons from Qatar’s model, including how these principles can be adapted to other countries internationally to be culturally specific, while also reviewing a number of further key recommendations.
