However, the amount of destruction and obstruction that has been taking place in providing the services and providing the commodities, the destruction that has taken place to the equipment that are available for the health workers has put the health workers in significant distress and also injuries to the health workers themselves and some of the patients who are attending this clinic.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean, Dr Hanan Balkhy, visited the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) to review the health situation firsthand.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dr Hanan Balkhy, Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean, World Health Organization (WHO):
“They're doing a lot of great work in assisting children, specifically in this world, who need significant rehabilitation. Doing the top quality of services when it comes to speech therapy, supporting patients who have different types of cerebral palsy, different spectrums of autism and disability diseases.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dr Hanan Balkhy, Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean, World Health Organization (WHO):
“Not only is health care access and provision an extreme challenge. What we see here right now is the devastation of at least 70 incursions that have taken place since October, leading to significant destruction of the environment.”

Balkhy, visited East Jerusalem, West Bank, and Gaza from 30 June to 10 July where she met with health officials, health partners, donors, WHO staff, and health workers and patients to discuss challenges, and find ways to strengthen coordination for the health response.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dr Richard Peeperkorn, Representative, Occupied Palestinian Territory, World Health Organization (WHO):
“We're here in Jenin, in the northern part of the West Bank. And unfortunately, since October last year, we've seen an increasing number of hostilities all over. This has resulted, for example, in more than 480 attacks on health care. Health care always needs to be protected.”

Key areas of focus were advocating for the protection of health care, scaling up health worker capacities and the medical supply chain, and addressing funding shortages affecting the health response.
