Israeli Role
in Gaza Described

The life-saving role
played by Israeli doctors in
the Gaza Strip was related
here last week at a meeting
on behalf of the 1980 Allied
Jewish Campaign - Israel
Emergency Fund.
Dr. Eli Lasch, director of
health services for the Gaza
Strip and Northern Sinai,
told his audience, many of
them physicians, that since
1967 Israel has spent $200
million to better the lives of
5,000 Gaza residents.
"In 1967, they were living
as though it were the end of
the 19th Century. In 12
years, we've moved them
into the 20th Century —
about '1965,' I'd say."
What that has meant in
terms of health care is a re-
duction in infant mortality
(from 150 per 1,000 to 40 per
1,000), the eradication of
malnutrition in children,
the disappearance of
malaria and cholera and the
near-complete elimination
of tuberculosis, polio and
typhoid.
Dr. Lasch, director of
pediatric services at Gaza
Hosptial, said that when Is-
rael took over the adminis-
tration of the area after the
Six-Day War, "there were
only rudimentary health
facilities" — 39 physicians
for the entire Strip. Today,
250 doctors are practicing in
the area; and for the first
time, they are undergoing
postgraduate training in Is-
rael. There are more than
500 nurses, most trained by
Israel. One one percent of
the staff in Gaza is Israeli.
In 1967, Lasch said, there
were no primary health
clinics in the Gaza Strip.
Today, no village is without
such a clinic. Lasch's
pediatric hospital was
opened in 1973.

meeting are, from left, Donald Fox, Irving R. Selig-

speaker Dr. Eli Lasch and Dr. Harris Mainster.

He described comprehen-
sive child health centers —
both preventive and cura-
tive in one unit — where
each child gets care from
birth till age 5. Hospital de-
liveries are up to 40 percent;
in the past, deliveries were
performed at home, by
midwives. More than 90
percent of the children are
vaccinated.
Until two years ago, all
services were free. Now,
under a health insurance
scheme, a family pays $5
per month for services.
The work of Lasch, who is
spending the current year
as a Fellow at the Yale Pub-
lic Health Service School,
has not gone unrecognized.
He has developed extraor-
dinary relationships with
Egyptians in both Egypt
and the Gaza Strip. The
World Health Organization
has expressed admiration of
the Israelis' work on behalf
of the Gaza residents, and
African nations are begin-
ning to emulate the health
program.
Recently, Nobel Peace
Prize winner Mother Teresa
of7ndia said that the condi-
of the Palestinian refu-
gees in the Gaza Strip has
undergone considerable
improvement under Israeli
administration. Lasch has
