On June 30th, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) signed a grant agreement with the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah, to provide grant aid of up to 897 million yen for the Programme for COVID-19 Crisis Response Emergency Support.
The program aims to establish an effective and safe vaccination system to improve the vaccination rate in Palestine and contain a further spread of COVID-19, through providing cold chain equipment such as refrigerated vaccine transport vehicles as promptly as possible. This program will contribute to the achievement of SDGs Goal 3.
The program contributes to “Last One Mile Support" by the Government of Japan for ensuring vaccination in every country. JICA will also work to apply its unique approach with capacity development through technical cooperation projects.
