Project Summary

While the data and the dynamics of the HIV epidemic in the West Bank and Gaza Strip suggest a low prevalence, many cases likely go undetected. Support from a UNDP-managed Global Fund grant that commenced in 2008 has helped to contain the spread of HIV infection through the testing, awareness-raising sessions and stigma reduction activities, focusing particularly on the education of religious leaders, the media, youth, women and law officials. The HIV programme’s prevention efforts target key populations at higher risk, including people who inject drugs and sex workers; vulnerable groups, including labour migrants, youth, women and prisoners; people living with HIV and their families; and blood recipients.  In 2009, The Global Fund approved a comprehensive proposal to implement quality DOTS (Directly Observed Treatment, Short-Course) services in the occupied Palestinian territory for five years. Access to tuberculosis care is currently available in all districts with this support from the Global Fund, managed through UNDP. This programme has further strengthened national capacity for TB case management, scaling up the provision of care through the Stop TB Strategy, and developed a national plan of action.
