EVENT: The impact of COVID-19 on the mental health of Palestinian healthcare workers (21 July)

Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) and Caabu invite you to an online launch of our new briefing paper, Dealing with Death and Distress: The impact of COVID-19 on the mental health of Palestinian healthcare workers, on Wednesday 21 July.

Globally, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has placed unprecedented strain on healthcare systems and healthcare workers. Through interviews with frontline staff, MAP’s new paper highlights the myriad of challenges that have negatively impacted the mental health of Palestinian health workers responding to the pandemic while also enduring the long-standing pressures of occupation, blockade and fragmentation.

On Wednesday 21 July at 2pm (BST, UK time), MAP and Caabu will hold a panel discussion to present and discuss the findings of the report and what can be done by the UK to support them and the broader Palestinian health system to ‘build back better’ from the pandemic.

  • When: Wednesday 21 July 2021, 14:00 - 15:00 (BST, UK time).
  • Where: Online. Sign up for the discussion here.
  • Chair: Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP

We will be joined by report author Celine Jabr, as well as Zeina Amro, Assistant Professor at Birzeit University and mental health consultant and Dr Ibrahim Zakout, Head of Nursing at the oncology department of Al-Rantisi hospital in Gaza, to discuss the report’s findings. Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP will moderate the discussion.
