The Peninsula

Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has sent a medical convoy to the Palestinian territories, in order to build the capacity of medical staff and upgrade diagnosis and treatment techniques at the Jenin Hospital in the West Bank.


With a budget of $99,444 (QR362,970), the project is coordinated with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) and Palestines Ministry of Health. The medical team comprises Dr Wasfi Jameel Hamad, Chest Medicine and Intensive Care Consultant, and Dr Mohamed Al Hitto, Neurology Consultant. During a meeting, the doctors were introduced to the medical staff by the hospitals manager, Dr Naji Nizal, and the medical director, Dr Wissam Bakr. They discussed all the present hospitalised cases.


Dr Hamad took a tour of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and reviewed their treatment plans with the medical staff, and advised them on the ICU best practices. At the Department of Internal Medicine, he gave a demonstration for the staff on how to diagnose some cases.


Meanwhile, Dr Al Hitto visited the Department of Neurology, and together with the neurologist working there, he examined eight cases on the first day and 15 on the second day.

A lecture was delivered to a group of student doctors at the An-Najah National University, covering the effective diagnosis and treatment of certain cases, such as neurological orders, neuropathy, and muscular dystrophy.

Another lecture was also delivered on the latest advances in neurology. This project is part of an extended programme to launch 23 medical convoys to several countries.
