Final Report: Palestinian Health Sector Reform and Development Project .

Project Report | November 14, 2014

Through the project, USAID supported the Ministry of Health, NGOs, and select educational and professional institutions in strengthening their institutional capacities and performance to promote a functional and democratic Palestinian health sector that meets public health priorities.

From 2008 to 2013, the project worked to achieve this goal through: 1) improving governance and management practices in the health sector, 2) improving the quality of essential clinical and community-based health services, and 3) increasing the availability of essential commodities to achieve health and humanitarian assistance goals. In 2014, the project continued exclusively on one component, which was to work toward improving governance and management practices and the quality of clinical services in the health sector through expansion of a computerized health information system (HIS).
