Physicians for Human Rights-Israel (PHR-Israel)
For the first time, a Physicians for Human Rights–Israel report analyses the health metrics gaps between the Israeli citizens and residents of the Occupied Territories. Palestinians live 10 years less than Israelis, infant mortality is five times higher than in Israel, and the mortality of women at childbirth is four times as high. “As long as the occupation continues, it is Israel’s responsibility to equalize the health conditions of the populations”.
