Health experts say Negev Beduin face impending health care troubles

A shortage of doctors and medical facilities will leave, Negev Beduin numbering around 150,000, severely undeserved regarding access to health care, a panel of health experts and Beduin community leaders said on Thursday.

“We are facing a crisis in the health sector in the Negev, there is a shortage of doctors and many of the doctors that came from the Soviet Union in the 1990s are going to retire,” said Yohan Atlan CEO of the Negev Council, who blasted the Health Ministry for “renouncing responsibility,” and instead blaming, “cultural differences.”
