The Palestinian Ministry of Health adheres to the principle of working together with all partners to develop and improve performance in the health sector in order to ensure the healthy management of the health sector and to create a leadership capable of setting policies and organizing work and ensuring quality services for the Palestinian citizen through a comprehensive health system that operates efficiently and fairly. The Palestinian government has created a system of medical referrals to compensate for the shortage of government health institutions, whether this shortage of specialties, medical expertise, equipment or medical facilities to accommodate the numbers of patients through the purchase of medical services from local medical institutions from outside the Ministry of Health, whether private sector institutions or civil institutions or charitable institutions, in addition to the possibility of buying medical services from other countries if not available in local health institutions.
