The “Right to Healthcare” Tour – October 25th-30th – a rare opportunity to hear Palestinian and Jewish Israeli doctors, speaking together on behalf of the right to health care for Palestinians living under the Israeli occupation!
Dr. Jarrar works with the Palestinian Medical Relief Society (PMRS) maintaining health centers, clinics, and rehabilitation programs, and training women as health workers. He was instrumental in launching the Palestinian call for Boycott/Divestment/Sanctions (BDS).
Dr. Marton observed the conditions in Gaza’s hospitals in 1988, motivating her to found Physicians for Human Rights-Israel, focusing on health in Occupied Palestine and in Israel. She also works for women’s rights and won the 2010 Right Livelihood Award.
Their two organizations collaborate closely, especially helping transport patients through the barriers imposed by the occupation.
As part of this tour, learn about the We Divest campaign and how the companies TIAA-CREF is invested in are profiting off of the Israeli occupation and the barriers Palestinians face to accessing health care.
