Wake Up Palestine – Access to Healthcare

Palestinians in Area C are faced with many challenges when it comes to access to Healthcare

Jerusalem24 – Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) published a position paper highlighting how Israel systematically discriminates against Palestinians and has fragmented Palestinian society and healthcare, presenting significant challenges to their rights to health and dignity.

Israel maintains control over the lives of Palestinians for more than half a century through occupation, annexation and blockade.

According to MAP’s position paper, Israel wielded its control in ways that gave privileges its own citizens, while geographically segregating Palestinian communities and denying them equitable access to many of the essential building blocks of health.

In this episode of Wake Up Palestine, Mohammad Hamayel speaks with Aseel Baidoun; the communications officer at Medical Aid for Palestinian. Together, they discuss the position paper MAP published as well as the challenges of access to Health Care in Area C.
