The Palestinian National Program for Social Protection
"Cash Transfer Program"
The Ministry of Social Affairs (MoSA) endeavours to socially protect Palestinian poor and marginalized groups through one national program, namely, the "Palestinian National Program for Social Protection". This strategic direction of the Ministry stems from its vision of a socially protected population over years to come. The Cash Transfer Program, the theme of this strategy document, comes on top of the components of the Social Protection Program and includes supplementary socio-economic interventions, and aimed to enable the poor to adapt, to better manage risks and to participate in the overall development processes. This document presents the MoSA's strategy for the unification of the Ministry's main cash assistance (cash transfers) programs only. It was developed through participatory and partnership approaches for relevance to the Palestinian situation and commensurate with MoSA's strategic goals.
