The Bedouin of the West Bank are one of the most isolated groups in Palestine, suffering from high rates of malnutrition and elevated rates of accidents and hygiene-related hazards.
With our partner Islah Charitable Society we provide a mobile clinic which treats members of these communities, and delivers health awareness sessions and hygiene kits to families.
With our partner, St John Eye Hospital, MAP provides free eye examinations through a mobile clinic, checking for conditions such as glaucoma and cataracts, and referring for treatment. The team also teaches preventative measures and helps people to self-detect eye diseases early.
MAP has been working with partner International Development of Family Medicine in Palestine (IDFMP) to support the development of family medicine as a specialist medical field in Palestine. The project aims to adapt the current primary healthcare service delivery model towards a family medicine approach to provide continuous, comprehensive, coordinated, person and family-centred care, with a multidisciplinary team responsible for delivery of services to a defined population.
