The United States - through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) - is providing $5 million in urgent COVID-19 assistance for the West Bank and Gaza. It builds on the U.S. donation of 500,000 Moderna vaccines through COVAX to the Palestinian Authority to help in the fight against COVID-19 and the $25 million in assistance USAID provided to the West Bank and Gaza earlier in 2021. This assistance will improve access to safe and effective COVID-19 vaccinations, as well as reduce morbidity and mortality from COVID-19. The funds will also mitigate transmission and strengthen health systems in the region to prevent, detect, and respond to pandemic threats.

The United States, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), is providing $75 million in assistance to communities in the West Bank and Gaza to meet basic needs, re-engage Palestinian society, and support economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. USAID is also providing $10 million for peacebuilding programs, including between Israelis and Palestinians. This assistance, subject to Congressional approval, is part of a larger U.S. government effort to support a lasting and sustainable peace for the people of the region through a two-state solution. This assistance follows USAID’s earlier announcement of $15 million in humanitarian assistance funding to support the West Bank and Gaza’s vulnerable communities.
