Contribution to UNRWA Health Program for Palestinian Refugees
UNRWA delivers basic health services and is responsible for contributing to a healthy living environment for Palestine refugees in the Middle East. From among all the Palestine refugees in the Middle East, almost 2 million reside in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. This population in particular suffers from the long-term effects of socio-economic hardship. Specifically in the Gaza Strip, the blockade continues to impair critically the supply of essential medical goods, delaying reconstruction and hindering patient referral.
This grant contributes to the UNRWA health program for Palestinian Refugees in the Middle East and is specifically earmarked towards the 2012 health program for Palestine Refugees in Gaza and the West Bank.
The overall goal of the project is to enable Palestine refugees to live long and healthy lives in Gaza & West Bank. The specific objectives are: 1. ensuring access to quality, comprehensive primary health care; 2. protecting and promoting family health; 3. preventing and controling diseases.
The expected results include (but are not limited to):
- Maintaining and improving general outpatient services
- Ensured access to hospital care
- Delivery of comprehensive mother and child health services
- Appropriate Management of Non-Communicable Diseases
