What Remains of Gaza's Healthcare System?

Israel's war in Gaza has had a devastating impact on the healthcare system relied on by the 2.3 million people in the Gaza Strip.

Before Israel responded to Hamas' October 7 attack with airstrikes and a ground offensive, Gaza had 36 hospitals. At the end of April 2024, 25 of these hospitals were 'out of service' and three were only 'partially working,' according to the Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry.

In addition, five 'field' hospitals have been set up. Our report shows how medics on the ground are trying to cope as best they can.
