Qatar's Excellent Healthcare

Feeling unwell? Never fear, Qatar's health system is one of the best in the world.

When it comes to your health, Qatar has it covered. The health system in Qatar was ranked 5th Best in the World and 1st in the Middle East in the 2019 Legatum Prosperity Index - outperforming 144 other countries around the globe.

The Legatum Prosperity Index annually ranks the health of people living in 149 countries around the world. Qatar ranks in the top five, just behind Singapore, Luxembourg, Japan and Switzerland. It is the only country in the Middle East region to score in the top five.

The health ranking for each country is based on performance in three areas - basic health outcomes, health infrastructure and preventative care, and physical and mental health. In recent times, improved life expectancy, better health outcomes, and investment in health infrastructure have resulted in Qatar's top-ranking position.
