West Bank and Gaza
RVF launched its first program in the Middle East in 2010, focusing on the West Bank and Gaza.
The RVF is working with the Ministry of Health (MOH) of the Palestinian Authority and UNWRA (the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) to provide rotavirus vaccination for newborns in the West Bank and Gaza. The MOH sustained a similar program to provide pneumococcal vaccination to all newborns in the West Bank and Gaza in 2013.
The RVF is currently working with the MOH to introduce a rotavirus vaccination program in the West Bank and Gaza.
