Al-Hasakah - SMART

The Health Authority of the Kurdish Autonomous Administration opened a dispensary serving about 20 villages in the al-Houl area, 70 kilometers south of al-Hasakah, Northern Syria.

The doctor in the dispensary, Diyar Rasho, reported that they opened the dispensary in the town of al-Houl due to the poverty of the area and the poor health sector in it, forcing residents to travel more than 50 kilometers to reach the hospitals of al-Hasakah.

Rasho added that the dispensary serves more than 20 villages free of charge, easing the burden on patients who were forced to go to nearby hospitals.

Rasho also said that the dispensary includes modern medical devices, diabetes analysis, and radiography and that it will be expanded. Rasho stated that they receive about 120 patients on a daily basis.

Civilians in several areas of the al-Hasakah governorate complained about poor public hospitals and high costs of private hospitals, causing negatively affect on the lives of children. Cities and towns in al-Hasakah also suffer from high prices and high treatment costs.
