6 Reduce child mortality

Where we are?


The national policies agenda focuses on the importance of improving community health on a sustained basis despite the great challenges faced by the Palestinian health sector from restrictions imposed by the Israeli occupation that prevent all citizens from equal access to health care services. Nevertheless, the occupied Palestinian territory has been able to achieve significant progress in primary health care services, including providing vaccines to all children, building and developing primary health care centres and improving secondary and tertiary health care services. the occupied Palestinian territory looks forward to further progress in this field, especially in areas most affected by the Israeli occupation, in regard to women and children and in some communicable diseases.
