Three Years Harvest Diseases Spread in Syria



One side of the Syrian crises is the deterioration of the human situation which includes the lowering living standards and the loss of means of living. This was reflected on the medical situation which was even worsened by siege.

SNHR is expressing here deep concern that some diseases like hepatitis B and hepatitis C are spreading now because of the lack of sterilization in blood transfusion in field clinics. Another reason for the spreading of these two diseases is the lack of medical equipments in areas under siege such as Damascus Countryside and Homs.
