The representation mission of Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) in Gaza has initiated a project to enhance emergency and trauma services at the hospitals of the Palestinian Ministry of Health (MOH), amid coronavirus (COVID-19) risks.

Medical solutions and lab equipment will be secured to detect Coronavirus cases. The new medical supplies will serve up to 28,800 patients per day at the departments of emergency and trauma in public hospitals.

To ensure transparency and compliance with the regulations of QRCS's mission in Gaza, a tender was conducted to purchase and procure 10 patient monitors. First, a list of items and specifications was received from MOH. Then, the tender documents and conditions were prepared and announced.

A coordination meeting was held with representatives of MOH and the concerned companies. The technical and financial bids were examined, and the winning bidder was selected. The supplies are set to be delivered within days.

At the same time, QRCS's mission is working together with MOH to apply the protective measures against Coronavirus at hospitals and health centers. The World Health Organization (WHO) called for maintaining maximum precautions and prevent the spread of the virus among the community of Gaza, where the health sector is already struggling due to years of blockade and lack of funding.
