West Bank health care

From C.:
"I have to comment on these allegations of substandard healthcare in PA hospitals, or just in the West Bank period. I am afraid that it is absolutely common knowledge that misdiagnoses and malpractice occur regularly (especially in terms of cancer) here. Further, much has been written about this in local media (in Arabic). This is considered a pervasive problem here and many go to Jordan for even routine operations.

It is absolutely a sad state and yes, we know people who have died or almost died because they didn't get second and third opinions on their original diagnosis.

If you decide to use any of this please keep my name out of it."
