Qatar has a pretty unique opportunity to be at the forefront of precision health with its relatively homogeneous gene pool and common in-group health ailments. At Qatar Foundation, we’re leading the charge to develop a program with real benefits for the local population.
Precision health holds a lot of promise to revolutionize the management of healthcare. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach to health, it can help us cater to the needs of each patient based on their unique genetic fingerprint and lifestyle indicators.
We’ve been early adopters of precision health in the region. The work we’re doing here in Qatar can be utilized across the Arab region and around the world.
These are the entities executing our precision health initiatives.
