MAP's vision is a future where all Palestinians can access an effective, sustainable and locally-led system of healthcare and the full realisation of their rights to health and dignity. 

Through our offices in the West Bank, Gaza, Jerusalem, Lebanon and London, we work with trusted and experienced local partners to achieve this vision.

Our programmes provide access to essential health services and build local knowledge and skills to address local health problems. In times of humanitarian emergency, we are ready to respond rapidly with aid and assistance.

MAP is also committed to bearing witness to the injustices caused by occupation, displacement and conflict. We speak out in the UK and internationally to ensure the political and social barriers to Palestinian health and dignity are addressed.

Essential Primary Healthcare

Strong primary healthcare is central to improving health and to tackling health inequalities. This is especially essential in occupied Palestine and Lebanon, where access to health services is often difficult and few doctors and nurses have specialised training in family medicine.

Women and Children’s health

For Palestinians living under occupation and as refugees, infant and child mortality rates have not decreased significantly over the past 10 years.

MAP is working consistently to strengthen health systems to meet the challenges faced.

Emergency Preparedness and Response

Hundreds of Palestinian lives are lost and thousands are injuried every year. Hospitals are under-resourced and emergency staff do not have the training they need.

In a volatile environment, preparation and training can make the difference between life and death.

Preparing for emergencies

Mental Health and Psychosocial Support

Psychosocial support is an integral part of MAP’s work. It helps individuals and communities to heal psychological wounds and rebuild social structures.

Disability

MAP is playing an important role, challenging medical and disability professionals to rethink disability as a social issue. We’re working to remove the barriers to the participation by people with disabilities in society.

Campaigns

As well as working through local partnerships to address the health and dignity needs of Palestinian communities, MAP is committed to addressing the root causes of these needs. We campaign in the UK and internationally in support of Palestinians’ rights to health and dignity.
