After the conflict, newly disabled Gazans contemplate the future
26 November 2014, Gaza – During the recent conflict in Gaza, patients could not always access the emergency treatment they needed due to the overwhelming demand on the already fragile health system. Moreover, Al Wafa Hospital, the only hospital providing comprehensive rehabilitation, was totally destroyed. Following the conflict, the health system is slowly being rebuilt. But with an estimated 1000 newly disabled patients, such as Nahla and Abdel Aziz, services are often still inadequate despite the huge efforts of medical staff.
