9. Health, Development, Information and Policy Institute. The Future of Hospital Services in Palestine: A Coordination Workshop on Hospital Care. Policy Dialogue Project Series Number 5. Ramallah: HDIP, 1999: 52pp. In Arabic and English.
This publication summarizes the presentations, discussions and recommendations that were made at a one-day workshop that was held by HDIP in January 1999. It probably addresses the most important challenges encountering the hospital sector. This workshop came as a response to the increasing need to end health services duplication and was meant to spearhead efforts in creating a strong base for developing the Palestinian health structure. The workshop proceedings discussed the importance of coordinating with hospitals in East Jerusalem and the contractual and financial requirements needed to have successful cooperation, and among the issues discussed was the regulation of hospital licensing.
