Gaza: Health sector facing worst pharmaceutical crisis ever


The Palestinian ministry of health has warned that the crisis of drugs and medical supplies will lead to serious repercussions for patients in the Gaza Strip, calling on all supporters of the health sector to step in to save the patients.
Dr. Medhat Abbas, director of the Shifa Hospital, stated on Saturday that medicines and medical consumables reached a deficit rate of more than 52 percent, describing the crisis as the most severe ever.
Dr. Abbas affirmed that the largest government hospitals in Gaza ran out of many essential medicines, antibiotics, vital drugs for patients with hypertension, diabetes and tumors, therapeutic milk for children, and consumables used for patients with renal failure.
He noted that private pharmacies outside the hospitals also ran out of many similar medicines and medical supplies.
