Healthcare

Caritas Jerusalem runs three health centers: two in the West Bank villages of Taybeh and Aboud and one in Gaza.

 

In the West Bank, the health centers reach out to a rural population, often cut off from health facilities in urban centers by military roadblocks. In Gaza, a mobile clinic acts in parallel to the health center to reach out to areas out of the health facilities range.

 

The medical staff at the health centers gives general and specialized medical care but is also very active in prevention programmes in schools and community centers on chronic diseases such as diabetes, women’s health, nutrition, road safety and home accidents. Systematic screening for breast cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure is also encouraged in the clinics.

 

Another focus that Caritas develops is the psychosocial assistance. Especially in Gaza, the population is in need of psychosocial treatment to overcome the trauma of the military aggression and the hardship of living under a blockade.
