The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) and healthcare partners, including Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Primary Healthcare Corporation (PHCC) and other key organizations in the State of Qatar, has affirmed that they are ready to activate and deploy comprehensive major incident response plans, if needed, at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™. 

In the recent years, MOPH has been working with local healthcare organizations as well as international partners to develop its major incident response plans. As part of the Sport for Health partnership between MOPH and the World Health Organization (WHO), disaster management experts from WHO have been working alongside Qatar experts to support the development of the response plans. 

Dr. Mohammed Al Hajri, Director of Health Emergency at MOPH, clarified that the State of Qatar has hosted multiple high-profile sporting events in the recent years and the healthcare system has played an important role in supporting the successful running of these tournaments. "These events, including the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup, IAAF World Athletics Championships 2019 and the FIFA Arab Cup 2021, have enabled the healthcare sector to gain valuable experience and test its major incident response plans ahead of FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022," as he said.
