Health in Palestine
In 2009, the respected international medical journal, The Lancet, published a Series of five reports about health in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt), citing 568 references and involving 37 international researchers, of whom 19 were based in the oPt.
To maintain the momentum of this collaboration, The Lancet Palestinian Health Alliance (LPHA) was established. Four years and three scientific conferences later, LPHA comprises a vibrant and productive network of Palestinian and international researchers committed to using the highest scientific standards to describe, analyse and evaluate the health and healthcare of Palestinians.
The series contains numerous valuable articles and research on the key health issues facing Palestinian communities. Below are links to the series and various other articles related to Palestine published in The Lancet.
