In a world where hospitals are in a constant state of construction, it is not uncommon to hear the words “buildings” or “work” repeated without a second thought.
It is true that in some areas, including in Jerusalem, hospitals have been able to build up to 50% of the needed beds, and in others, it has been much lower, with less than a quarter.
But it is also true that hospitals are often in a state of perpetual construction.
While some hospitals have received substantial funding from the state, in other places, it may have taken years or decades to build new facilities.
The new Israeli-Palestinian agreement will increase the amount of money the Palestinian Authority can allocate to hospitals, and the amount it will be able to pay to them.
As a result, hospitals will receive more money from the government, and their operating budgets will grow.
The new arrangement will make it easier for hospitals to expand.
However, the new agreement does not fully address the problem of chronic diseases in Israel, which is not just a problem for the Palestinians, but also for Israelis.
There are more than 6,000 chronic diseases, and while the Palestinian Health Ministry estimates that some 300,000 Israelis suffer from some form of chronic disease, this figure is based on only a single, small survey.
The Palestinians have been trying to address the issue of chronic conditions in Israel for years, and even though there are some improvements, they still lag far behind other industrialized nations.
Israel has been working to improve the quality of care in its hospitals, as well as its overall health system.
The number of patients who get treated by Israeli hospitals has more than doubled in the past decade, and they have been better able to treat the patients who need it most.
However a recent report by the Palestinian Center for Health and Development found that Israel had made little progress in treating chronic diseases.
It found that, despite the fact that the number of acute patients was at an all-time high, the number that received hospital treatment increased by only 1.7% annually.
In contrast, in countries with comparable health systems, such as France, the numbers of chronic patients have increased by 50%.
The new agreement with the Palestinians will make an important step forward.
It will bring more funding for hospitals, in addition to a number of measures to improve care for the patients.
It also will provide a significant incentive to hospitals to increase their capacity, which would be particularly important for patients with chronic conditions.
The main challenge facing hospitals is how to cope with the increased workload in an increasingly complex system, and this is particularly true in the wake of the Israeli attack on the Gaza Strip in the summer of 2014.
The medical infrastructure in Israel has become increasingly outdated and the new deal will improve the overall quality of services and improve the health care of all Israelis.
It is possible that the new arrangement could also lead to better coordination between hospitals and health authorities in the West Bank.
The Israeli-occupied West Bank has the most serious health problems in the world, and many hospitals are struggling to cope.
The deal with the Palestinian government, though, does not go far enough.
In the meantime, it remains an important, but still unfinished, step in the fight against chronic diseases and the ongoing occupation.
The PA has made some important and necessary improvements to its health system, but this is a step in an uphill struggle.
