Gaza health ministry to spend $46 million on new projects

June 8, 2013 6:50 P.M. (Updated: June 10, 2013 12:11 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Ministry of Health in Gaza is set to implement projects in 2013 worth $46 million, a spokesman said Saturday.

"The health situation today is much better than before, despite the blockade and closures, because the ministry has taken it upon itself to provide health services for the Palestinian people," Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an.

The health ministry works around the clock to facilitate the medical needs of Palestinians and has opened a center specialized to carry out open-heart surgeries, he added, praising the joint efforts of the ministry and WHO in implementing projects in the coastal territory.

Al-Qidra did not provide further details about the planned projects.
