As part of its efforts to improve the healthcare system in Qatar, the Public Works Authority (Ashghal) is set to develop four primary health centres. 
As per the plan, health centres will be set up at Nuaija and Al Themaid while the existing ones will be replaced at Madinat Khalifa and Umm Ghuwailina, Ashghal has informed through its social media accounts. 
The development will be carried through the Public Private Partnership model where the opportunity will be given for private investors to Design, Build, Finance, Operate, Maintain and Transfer (DBFOMT). Ashghal has invited expressions of interest for the project. The health centres are expected to be operational by the first quarter of 2024.
“Government will establish high-level project requirements including output specifications as well as operational and quality standards,” Ashghal said, adding that the land allocated for the health centres will be leased from the government on nominal rent basis. 
Currently, Ashghal is spending big on fostering the healthcare sector of the country as part of its efforts to help Qatar achieve the National Vision 2030. Ashghal has so far completed the construction of health centres at Muaither, Al Wajba, Al Waab and Naufar and they have been handed over to the Ministry of Public Health. This in addition to Al Ruwais health centre that has 48 clinics, 26 consulting rooms, 5 specialised consulting rooms, 4 dental clinics,10 dialysis units, a pharmacy, radiology facilities and a swimming pool, Ashghal also completed the construction of Hamad Medical Corporation’s (HMC) ultra-modern simulation centre that helps healthcare professionals improve their skills and advance the clinical techniques.
