Under the guidance of his Highness the Emir of Qatar, the SCH was established in 2009 and given the responsibility to guide reform in Qatar in order to establish one of the world's most admired and renowned health systems. The SCH's role is to create a clear vision for the nation's health direction, set goals and objectives for the country, design policies to achieve the vision, regulate the medical landscape, protect the public's health, set the health research agenda, and monitor and evaluate progress towards achieving those objectives.

Another key SCH function is oversight of the quality and effectiveness of service delivered by primary care and hospital and other public and private sector health service providers to ensure that standards are met and performance targets achieved.

The SCH is the steward of the health of Qatar's people. It has the dual mandate to develop policies and programs to improve the people's health so that they may enjoy longer and more productive lives, and to lay the foundation for a vibrant country for decades to come.

The Medical Licensing Department (MLD) within the SCH is tasked with:
  1. Assessing and processing license and renewal applications.
  3. Maintaining a register of licensed health practitioners and health service facilities.
  5. Monitoring and audit the compliance of licensed health practitioners and health service facilities.
  7. Supporting the Permanent Licensing Committee (PLC) in establishing required standards, qualifications, and conditions for licensing health practitioners and health service facilities.
  9. Supporting the PLC in promoting public and professional awareness of the purpose, functions, and rationale of the Committee.
  11. Providing timely and accurate information and courteous and helpful service to members of the public, health practitioners, and those associated with health service facilities.
