Webinar Series: COVID-19 and the Healthcare Systems in Israel/Palestine

Resource

The Foundation for Middle East Peace (FMEP) and the Middle East Institute (MEI) invite you to join a 3-part webinar series: COVID-19 and the Healthcare Systems in Israel/Palestine.

For nations around the globe, the COVID-19 crisis is both creating new challenges and exacerbating existing ones. This is especially true in Israel-Palestine, where Israelis and Palestinians live in close proximity, all under overarching Israeli authority but under regimes that afford them separate and grossly unequal access to health services.

In this context, the webinar series, co-moderated by FMEP’s Lara Friedman and MEI’s Khaled Elgindy, will examine how the COVID-19 crisis is impacting the very different and yet highly interconnected environments in Israel-Palestine, highlighting expert voices on the ground.
