The occupied Palestinian territory is highly vulnerable to a variety of natural and human-made hazards. Disaster risk reduction, emergency preparedness and response are therefore of high priority for the Ministry of Health and its partners.

One of the priorities within the WHO Health Emergencies Programme is to support the upgrading of the Public Health Laboratory in Ramallah to meet biosafety level 3 requirements to enable the system to expand its diagnostic capacity.
