Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn about health care in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Receive analysis from courageous Palestinians and Israelis who recognize the dignity of every human being and seek the end of the Occupation with a just and sustainable peace for people on both sides of the divide.

“I felt it an immense privilege to go on this trip which is meticulously organized and for me was a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
Dr Alison Payne, Coventry – November 09

During our journey you will:

§ visit Palestinian hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centres and teaching establishments

§ have the opportunity to compare treatment offered to Israelis and Palestinians.

§ meet key leaders and specialists from a variety of organisations who have dedicated their lives to help shape a better world.

§ hear stories from the local people and be challenged and inspired.

§ stay in Bethlehem and East Jerusalem hotels and travel to the surrounding locality as well as to Hebron, Ramallah, Jaffa and Palestinian villages.

The humanitarian element to the tour will enable clinicians to give donations to the organisations visited.

“It is always possible to comment on political situations in distant places but to do so with conviction needs an opportunity to come face to face with the realities of everyday life, and to meet people on both sides of the conflict. This tour enabled me to do just that with regard to the health care situation in the Occupied Territories”
Prof John Yudkin, London – November 2008
