Support to Gaza Community Mental Health Prog 15/18 - Support to Gaza Community Mental Health Program

Activity identifier

Gaza Community Mental Health Program has applied to Sida for continued funding of SEK 23,700,000 over a period of three years 2015-2017. The overall objective of the intervention is to provide high quality, integrated and specialised mental health services to enhance and sustain the Palestinian Society's wellbeing, based on the principals of justice, humanity and respect for human rights. This will be achieved through the three program components: 1) Contribute to improving the mental health situation of the population in the Gaza Strip. 2) Contribute to developing the capacities of professionals and other actors shaping the mental health system in the Gaza Strip. 3) Enhance the performance of GCMHP through ongoing institutional development and knowledge management driven by research. GCMHP's total budget is SEK 50,675,200 out of which Sida will fund SEK 23,700,000. In addition, Sida sets aside an additional amount of maximum SEK 500,000 for a follow-up review at the end of the second year of implementation. ******** Supplementary decision 2018 The overall objective of the intervention remains unchanged, along with the three program components given that GCMHP's strategic plan of 2015-2017 has been extended by one year to cover 2018. GCMHP has successfully completed an organizational restructuring process and significantly reduced their deficit. GCMHP has applied for 7,900,000 SEK- an amount consistent with Sweden's yearly disbursement to GCMHP since 2015. By the end of 2018, Sweden's total contribution to GCMHP since 2015 would be 32,435,000 SEK. GCMHP's total budget for 2018 is approximately 26 MSEK. During 2018, GCMHP will focus on their community mental health model, and implementing and evaluating their newly adopted policies (gender mainstreaming, integration of accounting and procurement softwares in the management information system.)
