WHO Warns Against Collapse of PA Health System

The World Health Organization (WHO) warned on Thursday that the health care system in the Palestinian Authority (PA) may collapse in the wake of the recent tensions in the region.

In a statement, the WHO said that the recent escalation of violence "raises concern" about the ability of the PA government "to cope with the increased burden of medical emergencies on the health system, given the high levels of shortages of medicines, medical disposables and hospital fuel supplies, and rising healthcare debt.”
