The second edition of Doha Healthcare Week, taking place from November 8-14, organised in collaboration with local partners in Qatar, but accessible to all globally.
Created by Qatar Foundation’s global health initiative- the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH), this year’s Doha Healthcare Week has been designed to promote healthy living and will take place in the lead up to the fifth biennial conference, virtual WISH 2020.
A diverse programme for all age groups will include mental and physical well-being activities, health checks, cooking classes, workshops, webinars, and competitions. The week also includes a limited number of physical outdoor events, each of which has been designed with social distancing requirements in mind.
In the spirit of enjoying sports as part of a healthy lifestyle, QF’s WISE, in collaboration with the Ali Bin Towar Network, will launch a cycling challenge on November 13. Participants will journey to Al Wakrah, which has been the focus of a wider effort by WISE to mobilise a local ecosystem towards promoting sustainable and healthy communities.
WISE is also presenting a Community 12K Running Challenge for Sustainability & Health, in collaboration with the Ali Bin Towar Network, on November 14. The run will kick off in Fuwayrit, then follow a route across Qatar featuring beaches and old towns.
Also on November 14, QF’s Qatar Reads literacy programme will be hosting an event titled ‘My Healthy Family’ for children aged 3-13 and their parents. Qatar Reads’ Family Reading Programme aims to engage the full family in activities that focus on adopting a healthy lifestyle.
