About Qatar's Efforts

Over the past 20 years, the State of Qatar has taken a leading role in autism research and awareness campaigns in the Middle East and around the world. The drive to change the narrative surrounding diagnoses and the conditions for people with autism has taken Qatar on quite the journey, from Qatar’s Mission to the United Nations in sponsoring a resolution dedicating a World Autism Awareness Day, to establishing the Shafallah Center for Children with Special Needs to provide institutional support for individuals with intellectual disabilities.

The Embassy is honored to continue Qatar’s efforts in advancing the cause for autism, in order to create communities that are more inclusive, with proper support and services that will ensure a better future for those diagnosed with ASD.
