Community Health Centers are an integral part in the healthcare system of a nation. While Qatar has an advanced national healthcare system, run by the modern and comprehensive Hamad Medical Corporation, it still recognizes the vital role of Community Health Cares in its ability to reach communities which may be a bit underserved, or those far from the larger more advanced hospitals.
Community Health Centers have another notable purpose; they provide services that are tailored to the specific needs of the communities they serve. In Doha, Qatar, there are several health centers or clinics that have a few specializations.
