Palestinian Medical Relief Society 2012-2015 - PMRS

Activity identifier

Core support to Palestinian Medical Relief Society (PMRS) which works with the right to health and with health service provision in all of Palestine including Area C and Gaza.

Expected results

The overall objective of this intervention is " Palestinians, women and men, boys and girls, without discrimination, have access to quality primary health care that takes into consideration the chronic emergency situation and for PMRS to be capable of responding to crises."


PMRS has clearly reported on their outcomes and outputs for 2015. A decrease in beneficiaries for some outputs is justified because in 2014 the high number of beneficiaries was related to the 2014 war on Gaza, whereby PMRS had to deploy more mobile clinics and emergency health workers were needed to aid the injured. The transfer of health models (non-communicable diseases, women's health, youth health, community-based rehabilitation, mobile clinics, and primary health care) had already been done in 2013, but in 2014 and 2015, PMRS held conferences to give stakeholders the opportunity to discuss the health models. The models were also introduced to other countries (for instance the MoH in Kuwait), but they have not been transferred yet. In terms of health education and awareness, a sharp increase in beneficiaries was reported as PMRS focused in 2015 on working with young people and involved them in preventive care activities, and emergency preparedness and first aid services.
