PROJECT ROZANA TELECLINIC
AT ASSUTA ASHDOD HOSPITAL
Non-communicable diseases are the main cause of death and disability in Palestine, with cardiovascular and chronic respiratory diseases, cancers, and diabetes being most prevalent.
A lack of diagnostic and therapeutic medical supplies and referral restrictions have fundamentally interrupted the treatment of chronic diseases. There is also a dearth of qualified medical professionals in specialist fields.
Digital health technologies give successful symptom assessment, timely care-seeking, follow-up and referral, treatment adherence, and improved quality of living for patients.
Project Rozana is launching a Teleclinic at the Samson Assuta Ashdod University Hospital in Southern Israel to provide online consultations to Palestinians in specialist fields of oncology, cardiology, and nephrology.
The project will have a dedicated Palestinian physician to coordinate the consultations.
- Provide access to specialized treatment for Palestinian patients, in the cardio-thoracic, oncology, and renal fields.
- Help build local medical capacity and resilience.
- Contribute to building
The new Project Rozana Teleclinic and its specialist physicians, will serve to provide a highly qualified response to many of these issues; connecting Israeli doctors with hundreds of Palestinians with serious illnesses and helping them to achieve positive health outcomes.
