Idlib, Syria, Apr. 13, 2018. Healthcare in Syria has witnessed a significant decline in recent years due to the ongoing war. Hospitals and medical centers have been destroyed by bombing, and the near absence of medical personnel and lack of regular access to medicine has contributed to the deterioration of Syrian healthcare. Syria used to be self-sufficient and produced their own medicine and pharmaceutical products. The medicine was brought to all of the Syrian governorates, and was even exported to other countries. However, the war forced factory owners to close the factory doors, and the lack of access to modern medicine has led to a return of alternative medicine. Many herbs and other natural medicine are known to treat symptoms of diseases efficiently, and many believe that they can replace modern medicine. Abu Alaa al-Hourani is a herbalist who fled to Turkey for three years, but returned to the Karama camp in Atma, northern Idlib, where there are many camps for internally displaced Syrians. Al-Hourani collects herbs and medicinal plants in the mountains surrounding the area, and treats those who cannot obtain modern medicine as best as he can. Al-Hourani has trained more than sixteen women in the camps in traditional medicine, and hopes it can be a source of income for them.
