Dr Al Bizri warns of a severe health deterioration

In a statement, Dr. Abdel Rahman Al Bizri warned of “the severe and dangerous deterioration in Lebanon’s health and hospital capabilities as a result of the loss and high cost of medicine, and the decline in the financial coverage of the various guarantors in a manner that is not commensurate with the real cost of hospitalization and other medical services.”

Al Bizri believed that “Lebanon, which was an important hospital center in the region and the capital of medical development and scientific research, has become a country threatened by losing the ability to treat its citizens.” He urged “the current government to take responsibility in order to rescue the Lebanese from health crises, after failing to rescue them from the claws of poverty and social destitution.”
