Moreover, the Preventive Medicine General Administration had a number of achievements in their field. Despite the siege, the General Administration was able to provide Gaza residents with the essential mechanism for preventive medicines such as epidemic preventions, inoculation services, food inspections, and a laboratory for general and professional health. In addition, the Ministry ran general education programs for the public.
Through these mechanisms, the Preventive Medicine Department was able to maintain a balanced standard for general health where reports showed a general decline in microbes in the territory. The PMD was able to participate in fighting Bird Flu epidemic which was defeated in 2006, as well as providing the pilgrims with the necessary health services such as inoculation for meningitis.
Furthermore, the Department was able to develop the performance of workers and staff both administratively and scientifically through keeping up with the latest developments in their fields and through sending delegations for training abroad. Additionally, the Department signed a number of understandings with Arab and foreign countries to facilitate technical duties accurately, all to achieve a healthy Palestinian society free from disease.
