Physicians for Human Rights – Israel

Physicians for Human Rights – Israel (PHR-I) stands at the forefront of the struggle for human rights–the right to health in particular–in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory. PHRI employs a multi-faceted approach to achieve its goals through the provision of humanitarian aid and work promoting policy change. Founded in 1988 by a group of Israeli physicians led by Dr. Ruchama Marton, PHRI works to promote a just society where the right to health is granted equally to all people under Israel’s responsibility. PHRI runs open and mobile clinics where its volunteer medical professionals provide services free of charge to people with limited or no access to health care–primarily migrants, refugees, and Palestinian residents of the West Bank and Gaza. At the same time, PHRI works to change discriminatory and abusive structures and policies towards Palestinians in the Occupied Territory, prisoners and detainees, migrant workers, refugees, undocumented persons, and Israeli residents. PHRI’s work includes data collection, casework, legal action, local and international advocacy, education, and mobilization of the medical community.
