The Palestinian Authority is establishing a Palestinian National Institute of Public Health (PNIPH). The World Health Organization (WHO) has been given the task of setting up the PNIPH, in close cooperation with the Palestinian Ministry of Health, Palestinian universities, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, and other stakeholders. The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is funding the project.
The aim is to establish the PNIPH as an independent legal entity under the umbrella of the Palestinian Authority, fully accountable for its professional and technical responsibilities, budget, and staff.
