EU Pegase-mechanism


PEGASE is EU’s main mechanism to support Palestinian state building and the implementation of the Palestine National Development Plan. Through Pegase the EU Commission and donors generate Direct Financial Support towards the Palestinian Administration’s (PA) recurrent costs. A new window has been opened to Pegase in 2013 with the aim of supporting the East Jerusalem hospitals and Finland’s support for the year 2014, amounting to 2,5 million euros, will be directed to this. The East Jerusalem hospitals are suffering from an acute financial crisis which threatens their very existence. Supporting development in East Jerusalem is also a policy goal of both the PA and the EU. The aim of Finland’s support will be to guarantee equal access to health care for all Palestinians.
