Physicians for Human Rights – Israel: A Situation Report on the Access to Health of Gaza Residents. July 6, 2010

01-07-2010 00:00

Following the Israeli Cabinet's decision to ease the closure on the Gaza Strip, Physicians for Human Rights – Israel (PHR-Israel) releases an updated situation report on the access to health of Gaza residents.
This report presents information gathered in recent months by PHR-Israel as part of its casework from Gaza patients, as well as an analysis of the obstacles patients face in accessing adequate medical treatment.
The information includes detailed updates on the situation of the local healthcare system, the process of patients exiting Gaza for medical treatment (including the Shin Bet policy to interrogate and detain patients on their way to treatment), and the extraneous considerations that Israel often applies when reviewing the applications of Gaza residents.
