Medical Aid for Palestinians at SNP Conference 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed deepening health inequalities between Palestinians and Israelis. These inequalities are particularly stark in Area C of the occupied West Bank, where Palestinian communities remain under Israel’s total control but are systematically denied equitable access to land, water and basic necessities for health, and prevented from developing essential healthcare infrastructure. On Sunday, 28 November, Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP)’s West Bank Director, Aisha Mansour will be speaking on these issues at an SNP Annual Conference virtual fringe event, hosted by SNP Friends of Palestine and supported by MAP and the Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
