The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza has warned of serious complications that may threaten the lives of dialysis patients, due to lack of treatment.

The Director of Pharmacy Department in the ministry, Alaa Helles, said that serious complications threaten the chronic kidney patients in the Gaza Strip, due to severe shortage of injections of the hormone Erythropoietin.

He stressed that the depletion of these injections threaten kidney patients with serious complications that will force them to undergo weekly dialysis sessions.

The number of chronic patients who do not have treatment is more than 400 patients in need of the 4,000 therapeutic quota per month.
