Project background
 
HI has been operating in Palestine since 1996 and has developed relationship with several disability stakeholders.According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics there are around 3,9 million Palestinian living in the OPT (3,5 million in West Bank and 1,4 million in Gaza strip), 43% of them below 15 years of age. According to general estimations by WHO, between 7-10% of a given population would have some kind of disability; in the Palestinian Territories, this implies that the figure would be around 270 000 – 390 000 people. The last census in 1997 gives a figure of 1,9%. This percentage is certainly a low estimation since the last census was implemented before the second Intifada, which has resulted in thousands of people attaining permanent disabilities.
Regular assessments are done in order to identify needs of PWDs in OPT. The findings of the last assessment are described below:
 
  • Lack of information of PwDs on services available and how to access it
  • Lack of quality and appropriate assistive devices.
  • Low quality of rehabilitation services not addressing the users' needs
  • Limited accessibility to rehabilitation services for Pwds:
  • Increased number of PwD and deterioration of the socio-economical situation in the OPT:
 
Specific Objective: Persons with disabilities can access to holistic physical rehabilitation services in the West Bank
 
  • Expected result 1 : The physical rehabilitation centres operating in the West Bank deliver holistic services.
  • Expected result 2 : PwDs are able to obtain a diverse range of adapted to their specific needs and affordable assistive device (AD's)
  • Expected result 3 : Accessible transportation options facilitate PWDs' access to rehabilitation services
  • Expected result 4 : PWDs, their families and all relevant stakeholders have information about the existing rehabilitation services
