Hospitals in the Gaza strip received a new batch of Palestinian doctors on scholarship from the Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) after they completed training programs and subspecialties in Jordan.

QRCS praised the successes achieved by returning doctors, whether their help in developing the medical service quality or their contributions to developing the local medical cadres according to international health protocols. QRCS stressed its continued support for these quality programs, which contribute to improving the medical services provided to patients by the Palestinian medical sector.

Director-General of International Cooperation at the Palestinian Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip Dr. Abdul-Latif Al Hajj said that the ministry pays great attention to the doctor's scholarship program abroad which enhances the performance of medical sector workers despite the exceptional and difficult circumstances imposed by the siege and the ongoing wars on the strip. He pointed out that the returning physicians received special medical training in the best hospitals and medical centers in Jordan, which was clearly reflected in the results of their surgeries that they provided to patients in governmental hospitals all over Gaza governorates.

QRCS has supported a specialized medical education program in the Gaza strip since 2009, which includes 33 medical scholarships in Jordan with a total amount of QR 8,944,593. During this period, doctors on scholarships studied medical specialties considered the neediest and scarce, to improve the medical services provided in Gaza hospitals in many specialties such as neurosurgery, hematology, oncology, interventional radiology, kidney diseases, endocrinology, and diabetes.
