Despite the progress made in GBV essential services in the sectors (to be elaborated in the following sections), it continues to be impossible to institutionalize GBV response  mechanisms at national level because of the challenges associated with the ongoing ng Israeli occupation and the protracted humanitarian crisis, plus the persistent internal  geopolitical divide and the lack of access to Areas C, H2, and East Jerusalem in the West Bank, where the Palestinian Authority lacks jurisdiction.  In addition, GBV programmes  and services continue to receive inadequate attention and prioritization in national planning and budgeting or donor funds, which significantly limits the human and financial  resources available for combating violence against women and girls in development and humanitarian settings.
