Challenge

The health sector in Gaza Strip suffers from successive crises due to the blockade imposed on the Strip for 14 years, in addition to the frequent attacks and aggression, which led to a weak state in providing health services. The dissemination of the Corona pandemic comes to add additional burdens to the health system in the Gaza Strip, as till 31th May, 61 cases are confirmed and 1 case dead. It is worth mentioning that Corona virus could easily spread in Gaza Strip due to the high density.

Solution

The project will contribute to promoting the protection of the medical team and workers of Al Awda Hospital who deal directly with the beneficiaries, in addition to protecting patients who are visiting the hospital through the provision of personal protection equipment and disinfectors. Moreover, the project will work to increase the protection of the local community by providing hygiene kits to poor and marginalized families, mainly women, elderly and people with disabilities.

Long-Term Impact

The prevention interventions will protect Al Awda Hospital's health workers and patients and will contribute to limit the spread of Corona virus in Gaza Strip. The project will also strengthen the health system and increase its capacity to respond to the health needs of facing Corona virus. In addition, targeting the poor families in marginalized areas, especially Patients, elderly and PWD will reduce their infection with Corona virus and having good health and well being.
