Chiara Bodini (Italy) and Wim De Ceukelaire (Belgium) are on a PHM solidarity mission in Gaza and were received by Dr. Mahmoud Daher, head of the WHO Gaza office.They conveyed the solidarity of the movement with the people of Gaza. This is his address in response to health activists abroad: "Gaza is in a situation of protracted emergency, where access to health is under great pressure. The political situation and the insecurity deprives people of their rights, including health professionals who have gone without salaries for months. There are delays in supplies due to the siege, and of course services are greatly damaged. Gaza has suffered from a de-development process in the past ten years, with great impact on the health sector."
