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.
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.
