Middle East and North Africa Health Policy Forum (MENAHPF)

Dr. Salwa Najjab, Juzoor’s Senior Health Advisor, is a Board member of the MENA Health Policy Forum (MENA HPF) established in 2008 as an independent, nonprofit organization, with membership drawn from health policy researchers and experts from the MENA countries. Its mission is to contribute to the development of effective, efficient, equitable and sustainable policies that improve health and that mitigate adverse consequences of ill health, particularly for those who are most disadvantaged. The Forum is currently the only independent non-governmental health policy network in existence in the MENA region.

"One of Juzoor’s leading roles is policy and advocacy. It is important to have policy involved in each step of the way from programing to conducting activities to ensure that projects run smoothly and effectively; and this is how we operate at Juzoor. Throughout the years, Juzoor took a leading role in establishing the Palestinian Health Policy Forum, MENA Health Policy Forum, the Palestinian Adolescent Coalition, and were part of the 
Arab Adolescent Coalition."
