We recognise the vital work being carried out by healthcare workers in the current conflict. We are supporting NGOs and UN partners to deliver medical aid and care in the Gaza Strip, to meet the immediate needs of the population there. This includes support for primary healthcare, trauma and emergency care services, disease surveillance and outbreak response, and deployment of Emergency Medical Teams.
