Problems facing the palestinian health system
Problems facing The Palestinian Health System:

  • Political Problems:

    • The main political obstacle is the occupation.

    • Apartheid Wall harms the health status of around 425,000 people (20% of West Bank residents). 41 clinics are located within 28 isolated areas and 38% of the Palestinians are deprived from health services due to the apartheid wall.

  • Financing problems:

    • Palestinian Healthcare financing is dependent on the external fund >> externally funded health projects focus on less important services ,such as large funds for family planning and too little for medications of the chronic diseases.

    • Referral abroad also consumes a great portion of the MOH budget.

  • Administrative inefficiency problems:

    • Salaries expenditure in the MOH increased from 45.35% out of the total MOH expenditures in 2000 to 52.4% in 2005; while non salaries expenditure decreased from 54.65% out of the total MOH expenditures in 2000 to 47.6% in 2005. This is caused in part by the great number of employees of administrative function without actual production.
