The Asian Athletics Championships Doha 2019 is also serving as a ‘test event’ for the upcoming IAAF World Athletic Championship Doha 2019, from 27 September to 6 October.

Aspetar, through the National Sports Medicine Programme (NSMP), will provide round-the-clock medical and health services to athletes, on-site emergency and first aid care and transfer of urgent and non-urgent medical cases to appropriate medical facilities. These services will be available to 40 participating countries, 800 registered athletes and 200 team officials during the course of the event.

Aspetar’s multi-disciplinary medical team of experts is staffed by some of the world’s leading sports medicine physicians, nurses, massage therapists and physiotherapists, all of whom will be available to support the world-class event this week.

In addition, Aspetar is also gearing up to host the International Conference on Sports and Medicine on 3 – 5 May. The conference is being organised by the scientific planning committee at Aspetar and will feature local and international experts.

Aspetar experts are all prepared and well-experienced in supporting athletes participating in major sports tournaments in Qatar.

Qatar’s status as a world-leading sports hub grows more each day. Within a short period of time, the country has emerged as a sporting capital of the Middle East and Asia after winning the rights to host the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ in 2010.
