Health Care Status

The health sector in Hebron bears the brunt of a lot of challenges. Apart from the Israeli measures (that impede the work of the medical staff and deny citizens' access to health services), the health sector in the governorate lags behind other governorates in terms of funding, inadequate medical staff, the number of hospitals and medical facilities and supplies and modern medical equipment. There are 147 medical facilities in the governorate:  84% of them are state-run. There are five public hospitals and five maternity hospitals, half of which are found in the city of Hebron, making access to these facilities difficult, particularly for remote rural areas
