The overall aim of the program is to ?continue supporting and strengthening the healthcare system in the West Bank and Gaza, in order to maintain the health and well-being of Palestinians who have been affected by the violence and economic and social dislocation associated with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?.
As such, the new program is intended to serve as a continuing effort of the ongoing ?Emergency Medical Assistance Program II? (EMAP II), implemented by CARE International, which is scheduled to end on December 31, 2005. EMAP II itself is a follow-on program to two previous health emergency response programs, both launched against the backdrop of the second Intifada and both implemented by CARE International. USAID/WBG intends for EMAP III to build on the successful performances of these previous programs. Even as there is renewed hope that the Palestinian and Israeli governments are ready to discuss a shared and peaceful future, support to the Palestinian health care sector, as provided under EMAP I and EMAP II, will remain necessary in the near future.
