The day represents an opportunity to participate in a wide range of physical activities - not only to have fun but also to highlight the importance of sport in building a healthy community. As Qatar’s main healthcare provider, HMC is committed to providing each and every one of its patients with the safest, most effective, and most compassionate care.

Qatar was the first country in the world to dedicate one day for its citizens and residents to celebrate sports and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle. The country’s strong focus on health is an integral part of the Qatar National Vision 2030.
