Health system strengthening towards universal health coverage

Print PDF

In the occupied Palestinian territory, WHO provides technical support to the Ministry of Health in building the resilience and responsiveness of the Palestinian national health system that is centred on people’s needs and circumstances. WHO has consistently supported health system strengthening through leadership and governance, health information systems, health financing, human resources for health, essential medical products and technologies, and service delivery.

WHO works with the Ministry of Health to enhance national health information systems and ensure people have access to quality health care services by integrating the family practice approach in primary health care (PHC). Currently, the family practice approach covers 3 districts and about 40 clinics. Strengthening the Palestinian health system is key to achieving universal health coverage.
