Investment Programme for Resilience
The Investment Programme for Resilience is a comprehensive, inclusive, and integrated response to the needs of the most vulnerable communities in the State of Palestine. The Investment Programme for Resilience (IPR) will support Palestinian communities in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, mitigate the medium to longer-term socio-economic effects in the areas of health and employment, and enhance access to sustainable and quality services. The programme will target most of the Palestinian population across the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.
As part of the immediate response, the IPR will enhance the preparedness and capacity of the Palestinian health system through the (1) provision of medical equipment and supplies, (2) deployment of health personnel and workers in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip, and (3) procurement and placement of medical waste treatment systems in health centres.
Simultaneously, IPR will rehabilitate and expand infrastructure and support sustainable and quality services at the community level in order to reduce vulnerabilities and strengthen socio-economic recovery. This will play a pivotal role in reducing disparities, strengthening social cohesion, and enhancing community engagement and ownership, particularly for women, youth, and persons with disabilities. It will also contribute to creating hundreds of short-term employment opportunities through construction works and long-term sustainable jobs for the operation and management of the new services provided. Around 120,000 people are expected to directly benefit from improved access to basic and social services in their community as a result of this component.
Between October 2020 and September 2021, the following was achieved:
- 1,150 health workers (skilled and un-skilled) were employed at Ministry of Health hospitals across the State of Palestine (target is 1,238).
246,261 workdays were generated through the deployment of the health workers (target is 260,348).
- Overall, 119 health facilities across the State of Palestine, including hospitals, laboratories, health centres and directorates, benefitted from the support (either medical equipment or health workers).
