Gaza Health Ministry says Medicine – Insulin and Kidney Dialysis Fluid Running Out Within Days

Published today 21:53

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Gaza’s Ministry of Health warned Sunday that it was at risk of running out of insulin and kidney dialysis fluid within days.

The ministry’s pharmacy administration said its deficit of stored medicine had reached 40 percent, and that it had run out of medication to treat leukemia, blood problems, epilepsy, thalassemia and maternal health problems.

The Health Ministry blamed its Palestinian Authority counterpart for the deficit, saying the Ramallah-based ministry had only sent 37 percent of medicine allocated to the Gaza Strip in 2010.

The Gaza government ministry appealed to international organizations to intervene and urged all involved parties to pressure the PA to send medicine to the Strip.
