Japan Trust Fund: Safe motherhood in Palestine

In Palestine, access to reproductive, maternal and child healthcare is shaped to a large extent by the unstable political situation. The socioeconomic levels, lifestyles and women’s position in Palestinian society is also a key determinant of demand for and access to these services. With support from the Japan Trust Fund, the Palestinian Family Planning and Protection Association implemented a project to improve reproductive, maternal and child health services among under-served groups in Hebron, Halhoul, Tulkarem and Gaza.
