The Palestinian Health Information Center (PHIC) at the Ministry of Health has established specific standards for documenting neonatal mortality and births in Gaza governorates.
Mr. Hani Al- Wahidi, Director of PHIC said that “this data needs our attention since the ultimate goal is to maintain a continuing decline of infant mortality and to stop preventable infant deaths.”

Ministry of Health has formed a national committee to document these data in and out of the Gaza Strip while establishing transparent mechanisms for the documentation process collaboratively between the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of the Interior affairs while developing an electronic registration mechanism to ensure the unification of data.
Mr. Al-Wahidi added that the members of the Supreme National Committee are conducting a field tour to examine the reality more profoundly and analytically, and to encourage doctors to perform death notices.
