Qatar Genome Programme aims to use the latest genome sequencing technology to establish a genome map of the Qatari population. To ensure the public are willing to engage in such an initiative, QGP conducted a nationwide benchmarking survey on genomic medicine. QGP contracted the Social and Economic Survey Research Institute (SESRI) based at Qatar University to conduct a national survey to assess the general public’s and healthcare professionals perception towards genetic and genomic medicine and their willingness to participate in genomics and precision medicine.
