The report indicated that the high percentage of exempt segments and the authority bearing the cost of medical services for them, which represents 35 percent of total income, constitutes a large burden on the authority and the budget deficit.

The report indicated that the authority is suffering from difficulty in some important specialties, the lack of capabilities in operating the emergency surgical center according to the current budget, and the scarcity of financial capabilities to maintain medical devices and equipment, in addition to the high cost of specialist contracts and their refusal to leave the capital to work in the governorate except at exorbitant costs.

In a statement to the Yemeni News Agency (Saba), the Chairman of the Authority, Dr. Ibrahim Al-Ashwal, praised the interest of the Chairman of the Supreme Political Council, Field Marshal Mahdi Al-Mashat, in the Authority and the efforts of the leadership of the Ministry of Health and the Governorate in contributing to overcoming the difficulties facing the workflow and supporting a number of humanitarian work partners.

He stressed the need to allocate a monthly amount to meet the service fees for the exempt segments and to address the funds, bodies, and institutions concerned with those segments to contribute to the service fees or to adopt a comprehensive budget for the authority, similar to the Republican Authority in Sana'a, to provide services free of charge in general.

He pointed out the need for the governorate to open a board course to meet the needs of specialists, raise the approved allocation for the maintenance of medical devices and equipment, search for donors to operate the emergency surgical center and important departments, and approve an operational budget for the center.

He noted the importance of sending specialists who are graduates of the board to the Authority and obliging them to provide the mandatory service there. The Authority will bear the incentives, housing, and nutrition, as is the case with general doctors.

The head of the authority pointed out the importance of approving the maintenance and repair of CT scans and the periodic maintenance contract for a period of 3 years through the Ministry of Finance or donors, and approving a financial budget for the emergency center.

He stressed the keenness to redouble efforts to improve medical services and ensure their continuity to alleviate the suffering of patients in light of the difficult conditions the country is going through as a result of the American-Saudi aggression and blockade.
