Palestine is facing a continuous shortage of essential medication, which is estimated to stand at 30% in the majority of governmental hospitals and clinics. This causes unnecessary suffering amongst patients. The shortage may be attributed to that the allocations for medication the Ministry of Healths budget cover only 70% of the needed funds.

The Money4Medicine campaign seeks to address this problem, by calling on the Palestinian Ministry of Finance to increase the allocations for medication in the budget of the Ministry of Health. This will ensure the availability of the necessary financial resources to procure the essential medication.

The Money4Medicine campaign launched 12th of July at the Palestine International Festival with an information booth, petition and campaign website. According to MIFTAH project coordinator Tamara Tamimi, it is important to engage the public with this campaign, so several public activities will be organized during the following months. Aim is to collect 100.000 signatures for the Money4Medicine petition, which will then be submitted to the Palestinian Ministry of Finance.

Campaign organizational team: Palestinian Initiative for the Promotion of Global Dialogue and Democracy MIFTAH, Coalition on Transparency and Accountability AMAN and Applied Research Institute- Jerusalem ARIJ.
