Gaza’s Health Sector: A crisis in need of support
July 19, 2023
In Gaza, a humanitarian crisis is unfolding, and its health sector is bearing the brunt of over a decade of siege, large-scale bombardments, and the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The situation is dire, with regular medical services unable to cope with the overwhelming demand, leaving the population vulnerable and lives at risk.
The combination of injuries from past conflicts, ongoing trauma, and the deadly virus has stretched Gaza’s medical infrastructure to its limits. Patients are not receiving the essential care they desperately require, and the dedicated medical staff is facing an uphill battle, overworked, underpaid, and also at risk themselves.
Adding to the plight are the glaring issues with basic necessities in hospitals. With limited access to power, water, and essential supplies, medical facilities are operating under severe constraints, further hampering their ability to provide adequate healthcare to those in need.
As the crisis deepens, the urgency for intervention becomes increasingly evident. However, amidst these trying circumstances, hope shines through in the form of compassionate individuals and organisations.
