Responding to the movement restrictions enforced upon our patients, St John Eye Hospital Group opened a third satellite centre in Anabta in the Spring of 2007.
The Anabta clinic caters for close to a million residents in the isolated North of the West Bank and – along with Hebron – allows us to reach almost all of the West Bank towns, villages and refugee camps.
Currently 70-80 patients are seen daily at Anabta – and this number can increase to 100 patients depending on the specialist clinics we might have that day.
There is a particular need for diabetic screening and paediatric ophthalmic services in the North and our patients number around 30% diabetic retinopathy sufferers and 25% children.
Anabta works in partnership with the Palestinian Red Crescent Society, focusing on the treatment and referral of diabetic patients, thereby intensifying efforts to control this preventable blinding eye disease in the region.
In 2012, we treated 20,097 patients at Anabta-6,614 under the age of 18.
