Gaza Health Center
The Caritas Jerusalem Gaza Health Center is located in the Beach Camp area of Gaza City. This is one of the most populous areas in the Gaza Strip and it is situated very close to the Jabalia Refugee Camp.
The health center offers primary healthcare and provides an integrated medical programme to the local community. Our doctors see about 970 general patients a month and nearly 300 female patients at the women’s health practice.
On top of medical care, our team in Gaza provides much-needed psychological help to the victims of the surrounding violence. They pay a particular attention to the children who suffer the most from the conflict and the harsh living conditions. In addition to therapeutic help, we also provide leisure activities for children and young people.
