Improving Medical Care in Palestine
Nablus is the commercial centre of Palestine and is home to An Najah National University, the largest in Palestine with some 20,000 students.
There is a growing need for specialist medical services in Palestine which currently lacks some of the more advanced treatments. Many patients have to travel abroad which delays treatment and is very expensive for them, their families and the Palestinian economy.
It would be far better to provide these specialist treatments within Palestine but this requires more and better trained doctors and nurses.
New Teaching Hospital
So the University is developing a new teaching hospital in Nablus to complement its well-established medical school. It already trains 20-25 doctors each year and has recently established a Faculty of Nursing to train female and male nurses in medical specialisations. There is also a shortage of midwives so the faculty has enrolled 216 students in a new programme.
An Najah National University employs dedicated staff, using best teaching practice to produce outstanding students. It works with partners within Palestine and beyond to ensure that it develops graduates delivering modern high-quality medical services.
FONSA can help
FONSA has been asked to help by An Najah National University. We are keen to facilitate this important project by supporting students who lack the financial resources for their intensive four-year courses.
These are the essential nurses and midwives of Palestine who will be providing the skilled medical services that Palestinians need. So please donate now.
