Economic Situation of Syria
Since the beginning of the second millennium, Syria has enjoyed a great recovery that has included many fields. The most important developments in Syria were the Healthcare and medical fields, which witnessed remarkable movements and became a major pillar of development in Syria. These services were developed in the prewar phase, especially in the field of pharmaceutical industries, the spread of hospitals and health centers, and the expansion of available specialties, which meet all the needs of the Syrian medical population By 2011 and entering the country in the war the Medical sectors have declined significantly and were subjected to a lot of sabotage and damage and incurred a lot of losses. Direct damage and pillage of pharmaceutical industry from the war, as well as economic sanctions imposed on it, was a major cause of the decline of the pharmaceutical industry, which resulted in the spread of diseases and epidemics and had a negative impact on the Syrian citizen during the war. Approximately 55% of 478 well equipped hospitals were damaged, 21% of them were discharged from service and 34% were partially damaged as a result of military attacks and theft of medical equipment. More than 700 people who used to work in the medical structures have been killed and assassinated since the beginning of the crisis.
