Ministry of Health demands solving health crisis in Gaza
The Ministry of Health in Gaza asked the Palestinian unity government to solve the health crisis in the Strip, urging it to revise its policies towards the Strip and its health services.
The spokesman of the Ministry, Dr. Ashraf al-Qudrah, said in a statement on Sunday the government has been ignoring the cleaning companies’ financial dues, prompting them to threaten a return to escalatory measures.
He added the government is also ignoring the need for filling job vacancies in the health facilities.
Qudrah called for solving the crisis of civil servants in the health sector on the administrative and financial levels. “They have not received their salaries for eight successive months, which has dangerous implications on their living conditions and on the overall health services”.
He called on the Palestinian factions along with the Palestinian Legislative Council to direct the government’s policies in both Gaza and West Bank toward solving the health crises.
