As Health Care Workers, We Stand in Solidarity with Palestine

We are health care workers (HCWs) and faculty from around the world who stand with the Palestinian people in their struggle for freedom and liberation. In light of the illegal, immoral and targeted attacks on HCWs and infrastructure, we call upon U.S. health care systems and academic institutions, as well as our colleagues in health care, to unequivocally condemn Israel's long-standing oppression of the Palestinian people and the ongoing decimation of their health care system. Those of us who work in health care understand well that health care does not exist in a vacuum. Mainstream platforms and public health leaders continue to ask us to ignore the evidence and laud as exceptional Israel’s public health gains. *One of the co-authors of this statement, a Palestinian health care worker and faculty member in the U.S., has elected to remain anonymous.
