​​"The State of Qatar is proud to be the first country from the Middle East to host the FIFA World Cup.

This is why we are working so closely with WHO, FIF​A and the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy.”

Her Excellency Dr. Hanan Mohamed Al Kuwari

“WHO is committed to working with the State of Qatar and FIFA to leverage the global power of football to help people lead the healthiest lives possible. This partnership will help to make the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 a role model for healthy sporting events.”

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

“It’s important that the first FIFA World Cup in the Middle East will be the healthiest World Cup ever. Here, we put our efforts together through this innovative partnership to promote health in a different way, using the power of football to communicate certain messages. We have been working together on different awareness campaigns and what better platform now than the FIFA World Cup for passing the Health for All message? We need health for football, and we need football for health.”

Mr. Gianni Infantino
FIFA President

“As FIFA World Cup hosts, Qatar has worked to underscore the importance of leaving sustainable and transformative social legacies that improve lives – in Qatar, within our region and around the world. This partnership is critical for us as we prepare for hosting the world at the end of this year in the context of the pandemic, which has affected so many lives around the world. We’re engaging in every effort along with local and international partners to ensure a healthy and safe FIFA World Cup.”
