Qatar, the World Health Organization (WHO), and FIFA have joined hands to set a legacy through a range of health measures during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

The measures include providing healthy food options inside stadiums and fan zones, enhancing tobacco prevention in stadiums, fan zones, and other areas, starting collaborative agreements with countries to benchmark legacy-building activities, and exchanging lessons learned with the International Olympic Committee for Paris 2024 and Milano Cortina 2026.

Heads of WHO, Qatar’s Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), FIFA, and the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) also agreed on building on actions taken at the FIFA Arab Cup in 2021, strengthening health emergency preparedness and ensuring maintenance of precautionary measures for containing infectious diseases, including COVID-19, to keep people safe and healthy. The measures were announced following a first Steering Committee meeting of the ‘Healthy FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 - Creating Legacy for Sport and Health’, a three-year partnership launched in 2021. It aims to undertake joint activities to place the promotion of healthy lives, health security, and physical and mental wellbeing during Qatar 2022.
