Wondering about health care services for expatriates in Qatar? Here is an overview of the health care system.
If you suffer from a chronic disease requiring continuing care, you can get your medicines in Qatar, thus ensuring the continuity of your treatment. However, medicines brand names may vary locally. As a consequence, try to find a local doctor speaking your language for more advice and safety. You can contact the embassy or consulate of your home country established in Qatar to get a list of doctors speaking your language. Note that certain drugs like antidepressants are banned in Qatar.
You will find addresses of most hospitals and health care centers on the Hamad Medical Corporation website.
