NORWAC IN

PALESTINE

NORWAC has since 1994 worked with the Palestinian Ministry of Health (MoH) to develop their public health institutions and strengthening local educational institutions. Through its work, NORWAC has established a long-term cooperation with the MoH and healthcare providers to promote predictability, ensure mutual trust and create lasting results.

The emphasis is on utilizing local expertise and resources. However, upon request from the Palestinians, Norwegian health personnel are dispatched to consult and work together with local staff. NORWAC has entered an institutional cooperation agreement with Oslo University Hospital (OUS). The agreement ensures access to highly qualified medical and technical experise, which is used both at Al-Makassed Charitable Hospital in East Jerusalem and at Shifa Hospital in Gaza. NORWAC’s partners in Palestine are listed at the bottom of the page.

NORWAC’s goals

  • The Palestine Ministry of Health (MoH) is continuously able to deliver critical health services to the Palestinian population
  • Systems and medical staff in Al-Shifa Hospital are resilient and prepared for emergencies
