Health Action in Crises (WHO/HAC) Highlights - No 24
Monday, 30 August 2004




The Mental Health anti-stigma campaign is now underway in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The campaign is backed by the Ministry of Health, WHO, and other health actors.


WHO started the implementation of the Mental Health anti-stigma campaign with a distribution of 15,000 copies of "Mental Health for All; it's time to change our attitudes towards mentally ill people" and the broadcast of anti-stigma campaign messages via radio.

WHO held a district emergency health coordination meeting in Salfit (district located in the north of the West Bank with 60,000 inhabitants) to assess the impact of movement restrictions caused by checkpoints in the area and the construction of the separation barrier.

Current WHO humanitarian actions in the West Bank and Gaza Strip have been made possible by 2004 funding from USAID, AGFUND, and the Government of Norway, as well as pre-2004 funding from ECHO.
