​ The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) launched a website highlighting FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 healthcare objectives in partnership with FIFA, World Health Organization, and Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC). Titled “Healthy FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ - Creating a Legacy for Sport and Health", the website embarks upon various activities and goals delivered by MoPH with partners. 

Health promotion, health security, and health communications along with health promotion activities focused on four core themes: physical activity, nutrition, mental health, and tobacco are key pillars upon which the website is centered around. 

As part of a global partnership to promote health at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) decided to launch a new website in partnership with FIFA, World Health Organization (WHO), and Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC).

Operational since October 2021, this first-of-its-kind agreement began as a three-year partnership with the core vision of propagating healthier habits from diet to physical activity, for people of all ages, genders, and cultures. Reinforcing commitment towards well-being and hygiene, the collaboration aims to support improvements in physical activity in organized sporting events. 

Mr. Ali Abdulla Al Khater, Chair of the Supreme Healthcare Communications Committee, said, “We are proud to be collaborating with WHO, FIFA, and SC on this historic partnership. Together, we are committed to ensuring a safe FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ for all those attending and to using the tournament as a platform to promote healthy lifestyles to a local and global audience. 

The new website enlists in great detail various values and goals successfully delivered to encourage healthcare. Focusing on core themes of physical activity, nutrition, mental health, and tobacco, the partnership is diligently working towards key pillars of health promotion, health security, and health communications along with health promotion activities.

 “An enormous amount of work has already been undertaken since the partnership signing. We have jointly organized multiple training workshops for healthcare teams in Qatar as part of the health security pillar, while our health promotion and communication efforts have seen numerous awareness activities delivered for National Sport Day, World No Tobacco Day, and World Blood Donor Day, to name just a few. Our activities will increase exponentially the lead up to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 as work towards our goal of positively impacting the health and wellbeing of people across the world,” said Dr. Salih Al Marri, Assistant Minister for Health Affairs at MoPH.

The partners are collectively working with Qatar officials to ensure a healthy and safe FIFA World Cup 2022 leaving behind sustainable and transformative sporting legacies.
