Gaza, MINA – Palestinian health minister Jawad Awwad said his ministry would convene a meeting next Sunday for its institutions in Gaza to discuss their needs and the health situation in general.
Awwad made his remarks to the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) on the sidelines of a conference held on Friday by the faculty of medicine at the Islamic University on “managing health crises and disasters in Gaza.”
The minister affirmed that his ministry would continue to provide support for the health institutions in Gaza and to send convoys of medical aid, adding that a convoy of pharmaceutical needs arrived in Gaza from Nablus a few days ago.
In his speech on behalf of premier Rami al-Hamdallah during the conference, Awwad said that his ministry would take the information tabled in the conference into consideration in order to effectively manage the health crises and disasters in Gaza.
He asserted that the government would work on establishing and developing institutions and centers to provide medical assistance for the citizens affected by Israel’s wars on Gaza and would seek to address the water crisis through carrying out strategic projects. (T/R04/RS%)
