Institute for Population Health

RM Overview Page

We welcome you to the Institute for Population Health (IPH) at Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar, where we believe in the paramount importance of population health at both local and global levels.

Health is a shared responsibility; it matters to everyone and is the foundation of every society. We pride ourselves on our principle that health problems are best addressed by cooperative actions, approaches guided by experience and sound scientific research.

A collaborative setting for engaging in population health research, information exchange, and the promotion of evidence-guided, population-based approaches to global health.

In unison with the goals and mission of the college, the initiatives of the institute are organized in the three broad areas of education, research, and community care programs, and are aimed at advancing the health agenda in the State of Qatar.

Collaboration is at the heart of what we do; the institute works in partnership with local, regional, and global partners in the development and implementation of evidence-based population health programs and activities with a view to promoting the overall wellbeing of the people in the State of Qatar, the Middle East and beyond.

We believe that effective public health policies, healthy lifestyles, and informed healthcare decisions can improve life expectancy and health outcomes and advance the overall quality of life.

We invite you to explore our website to discover our programs and share your interests, experiences and ideas with us so that we too can continue to learn.

You are most welcome.
