The COVID-19 Response Plan for the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) presents the joint strategy of the humanitarian community, including UNRWA, to respond to the public health needs and immediate humanitarian consequences of the pandemic in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip. It is guided by the Health Cluster’s Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan, published on 14 March 2020, which is designed to steer a coordinated effort in support of the Ministry of Health (MoH) and the overall efforts of the Government of Palestine (GoP). In this respect it will provide an important bridge between this largely partner and Health Cluster response and the broader socio-economic recovery plan of the GoP, with support from the World Bank and others. This plan seeks to mobilize support to implement the most urgent and critical activities over the next three months.
