Zeina’s family has almost forgotten the taste of chicken and meat. A can of beans costs some 30,000 and a kilo of tomatoes 15,000 Lebanese pounds. ‘These foods were consider to be for the poor,” Zeina said. “Eating them today is a luxury.”

The sight of over crowded private doctors’ clinics, with over booked appointment lists for consultation or follow up is a thing of the past. The cost per consultation now ranges between LBP200,000 and LBP300,000. This has forced many patients to seek treatment in public sector clinics or healthcare centers where the consultation fees don’t exceed LBP20,000.
