We support health clinics in the West Bank and Gaza where it can be difficult to get medical attention due to poverty, travel restrictions, and checkpoints in the occupied Palestinian territories.
This programme provides health care to Palestinian Territories in Aboud and Taybeh villages in the West Bank, and in Gaza. Caritas Jerusalem runs a mobile clinic (in Gaza) and have extended health care services to more than 20,000 patients throughout villages and camps in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The services provided include general medicine, gynaecology, paediatrics, dental care, orthopaedics, urology, ophthalmology, dermatology, and laboratory and x-ray services among others.
