About Primary Health Care Corporation
PHCC is dedicated to providing the people of Qatar with highest level of health care by operating and managing different Health Centers across the state of Qatar.
This was the first step in establishing a primary health care system and started to provide healthcare services through a range of clinics as early as 1954. In 1978 the Ministry of Health developed a comprehensive scheme for building a primary health care system which was submitted to the Council of Ministers and the scheme included the launching of primary health care services through 9 health centers, covering different parts of the country, and capable of providing basic and essential health and medical services (preventive and curative). Since then, all effort has been spent to enhance health care standards. Overtime, services were planned with the objective of being the first health defense line, and it continued to improve both in terms of quantity and quality.
The Primary Health Care Corporation is now operating through 26 primary health care centers distributed into three regions, namely: Central, Western, and Northern. Thirteen of these centers are located in Doha city, while the rest of centers are located in populated areas in all parts of the country in order to provide a wide variety of different types of health care services that depend on the location and needs of each area throughout a set of objectives which focuses on keeping the health of population, and prevention from diseases, in addition to patient Diagnose and treatment, and the provision of a long-term and constant support to patients and their families from infants to elderly, children, adults, married couples, and mothers.
