This Vulnerability Analysis explores the root causes of health vulnerability in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. There are three principal components to the report: the first part contains an overview of the health status of the population and the health care system, the second part looks at vulnerability and examines some of the relationships between changes in the broader socio-economic and political context and the health care needs of the population, and the third part begins by looking at the nature and extent of the international health response to date and highlights key factors influencing the impact of the international health response.
