Syria needs $56m to meet health care needs: WHO

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said $56m is required to address the health needs of the populations affected by the crisis in Syria and neighbouring countries in 2013. Syrian health professionals, staff and patients continue to face difficulties reaching hospitals and health centres due to insecurity, the UN body said. Reports from November and December 2012 indicate that almost 55% of public hospitals, approximately 10% of health centres and 58% of ambulances have been damaged or destroyed. At least 31% of public hospitals are out‐of‐service, said the WHO.
