The Medical Device Market: Qatar

As part of the Qatar National Vision (QNV) 2030, the government launched the National Development Strategy (NDS) 2011-2016 in 2011, which is a short-term strategy plan. The NDS incorporated 14 sectorspecific strategies, one of which was the National Health Strategy (NHS) 2011-2016. One of the first NHS disease-specific strategies was the National Cancer Strategy (NCS) 2011-2016, which outlined six key cancer care stages. The NHS identified key challenges to healthcare, including an imbalanced care model, limited national health integration, changing morbidity and mortality patterns, increasing and fluctuating population, quality workforce shortages and the need to strengthen health regulation.
