Palestinians Need an Immediate End to Medical Apartheid

By: Prema Rahman, MPAC Human Security Manager

Millions of Palestinians are now living under full-blown medical apartheid, with no access to vaccines. Alone, they stand little chance to secure vaccine supplies. They need international help.

With Inauguration Day inching closer, we are pegging our hopes for peace and reconciliation to the new President’s ability to reinstall America’s human rights responsibilities. Domestically, President-elect Biden has his work cut out for him, with the nation deeply divided and Americans struggling to have faith in the legitimacy of our government in the face of police brutality, racial injustice, health inequality, and health insecurity. Internationally, America has a long path to regaining credibility and legitimacy.
