The health of Palestinians inside and outside the occupied Palestinian territory

6.30-8.30pm, followed by drinks reception until 9.30pm

Venue:  Council Chamber, Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), 5-11 Theobalds Road, London, WC1X 8SH

Medical Aid for Palestinians is delighted to be hosting, in association with The Lancet, the London launch of fascinating new research brought to light by the Lancet-Palestinian Health Alliance (LPHA).

The LPHA is a network of Palestinian and international researchers committed to using the highest scientific standards to describe, analyse and evaluate the health and healthcare of Palestinians. Established in 2009, its key aims are to build capacity for research; to develop scientific methods that are culture-specific; to increase academic collaboration – within occupied Palestine, Lebanon and across the region – and to engage in advocacy based on science.

Please join us on 5 December for the launch of the Lancet’s publication of research presented earlier this year at the fourth LPHA conference in Cairo. The LPHA’s research findings deserve to be more widely known.

Speakers:

Sir Iain Chalmers, one of the founders of the Cochrane Collaboration and coordinator of the James Lind Initiative

Dr Richard Horton, Editor of the Lancet

Professor Rita Giacaman, Institute of Community and Public Health, Birzeit University

Aimee Shalan, MAP’s Director of Advocacy and Communications

Professor Graham Watt, Institute of Health and Wellbeing, University of Glasgow, and MAP Trustee

Spaces are limited, to reserve a place please email william.parry@map-uk.org by 27 November 2013.
