Lebanon: "Healthcare collapsing":

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The World Health Organizations is warning of the imminent closure of at least two-thirds of the Lebanon's hospitals, due to shortages of fuel. Given the damage to public infrastructure, the healthcare system - with an inpatient capacity of 12,000 beds - is reliant on generators to power operating theatres, life-saving equipment, including incubators, and refrigeration units, among other things. "The provision of fuel is a matter of life or death in the hospital setting. If fuel is not delivered this week, 60% of all hospitals in Lebanon, in addition to other health facilities will simply cease to function," warned the WHO on August 7.
