MEDICAL ETHICS IN A JEWISH STATE

Project Rozana Canada recently co-sponsored an important public meeting with the New Israel Fund of Canada (NIFC) to hear from Ran Goldstein, executive director of Physicians for Human Rights Israel (PHR).

This humanitarian organisation delivers medical services to and raises awareness about under-served populations in Israel. It is the only Israeli organisation that is authorized to provide medical relief in the Gaza Strip.

Ran was interviewed by Amy Block, president of NIFC.

He confirmed that in 2019, PHR’s mobile clinics will serve uninsured and stateless residents of Israel, such as asylum seekers, as well as Palestinians in the West Bank.

Mark S Anshan, Chair of Project Rozana Canada, said that the event was an opportunity to partner with the New Israel Fund of Canada, which it hopes to work closely with in the future, saying,

“It is important that Project Rozana Canada engage with other like-minded organisations, collaborate on projects and leverage the synergies that exist.”
