|Title||Barriers to Health Care Utilization Facing Prostate Cancer Survivors Living in Gaza Strip|
There are several studies that aimed to identify barriers to health care utilization, but none of them was conducted in a developing country that addressed barriers to health care utilization facing prostate cancer survivors. This study aimed at identifying barriers to health care utilization facing prostate cancer survivors who live in Gaza Strip. A qualitative approach with a semi-structured interview was used to collect data. Participants reported several barriers to health care utilization. These barriers were categorized under the following major categories: 1) barriers due to unavailability, 2) organizational barriers, 3) communication barriers, 4) geographical barriers, 5) socioeconomic barriers, and 6) barriers related directly to the blockade imposed on Gaza Strip. Within each category several subcategories emerged.
