ReCap Report 2016

The ReCaP project 2016, delivered by IFMSA Palestine, was a hugely memorable experience. We feel we have gained so much from this experience: we have gained understanding about the situation in Palestine and learnt about the health care system there, challenges providing care under occupation, and health of refugees. We feel we have also benefited on a personal level through participating in the project, by gaining some insight into the lives of our Palestinian hosts and forming strong friendships.

Settlements and separation in the West Bank: Future implications for health

The conflict and socioeconomic isolation that has been engendered by the policies of settlement expansion and separation barrier construction is the arguably the most pervasive threat to the health status of Palestinians in the West Bank. The acquisition of 60% of the West Bank, known as Area C,for ‘near exclusive’ Israeli control has become a major obstacle to delivering basic services. The example of Western Bethlehem is typical of the broader situation across the West Bank where the completion of the separation barrier is projected to reduce access to essential services for over 23,000 Palestinians by separating nine communities from their surrounding agricultural lands.
