UNFPA Palestine

Reproductive health care services in Palestine are affected by cyclical humanitarian crises that cause a range of challenges, from duplication of services to shortage of equipment and supplies and restricted mobility. UNFPA began its operations in 1986. Today it focuses equally on two objectives. The first, for the longer term, is to support health institutions in providing high-quality, comprehensive and rights-based services, including those targeting youth. The second entails responding to humanitarian needs, particularly among vulnerable communities in Gaza and some vulnerable localities in the West Bank.
