NEW DELHI: Healthcare major Apollo Hospitals Group is opening its first clinic in Doha, Qatar, in association with the Abdullah Bin Qasim Al-Thani group, a diversified group that also has a chain of pharmacies in that country.

The decision is part of the Chennai-based Apollo's plan to open 250 clinics over the next five years, including 40 in countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and South Africa, the company said.

The Doha hospital is being opened through the group's wholly owned subsidiary, Apollo Health and Lifestyle Ltd.

"Our demand studies and research findings have indicated that there exists a need for a strong primary healthcare backbone in many countries in the Asian region," said Ratan Jalan, chief executive of Apollo Health and Lifestyle Ltd.

"The idea is to supplement our expertise in healthcare domain with a franchisee's understanding of the local market."
