Commitment

In 2010, Israel supported the Global Strategy for Women's and Children's Health by placing women's and children's health issues at the heart of its international development agenda. In 2011, in line with its ongoing partnership with the Ghanaian authorities in Kumasi, Israel built a cane water supply system at the Komfo Anokye hospital valued at USD $50,000, in addition to supporting the training of health professionals working at the Mother and Baby units previously established by Israel, a training program valued at USD $70,000. In spring 2011, Israel completed the construction of an emergency and trauma unit and provided the operational medical equipment and specialized training for health professionals at the Hospital Justinien in Cap-Haitiƫn, Haiti, a project valued at USD $720,000. Over the course of this year and next, in an effort to provide quality diagnostic and emergency services for women and children, Israel will supply equipment for diagnostic services in Freetown, Sierra Leone; an emergency trauma unit in Kampala, Uganda; three mobile medical emergency units in Guatemala; and a diagnostic center in Vinice, Ukraine, for a total value of USD $1.3 million. Finally, in 2011 Israel announced a USD $100,000 contribution to UNAIDS to conduct a qualitative assessment to better understand the gender-related socio-cultural factors which amplify the barriers faced by pregnant women with HIV.
