MAP 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.
