Gaza Strip faces an increasing rate of population especially in the Middle Governorate. Because of unjust siege, lack of resources and health facilities, many places in the Governorate can't achieve such services. This research aims to study and analyze the current health status in the Middle Governorate.

It is found that the Middle Governorate needs to build six new clinics at the current time, and construct a hospital due to the absence of any specialized hospital in the Middle Governorate. The places of the new clinics and the specialized hospital are chosed by using (GIS) and the process of multi-criteria spatial analysis (SMCDA) Several criteria such as population density, schools, markets, cemeteries and several other factors are taken into account.
