Every day there are more casualties – both literal and figurative – in the ongoing conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. While many are convinced that the peace process is today extremely tenuous, many Israeli and Palestinian health professionals believe that one option is to concentrate on improving the health status of both populations via cooperation between Israeli and Palestinian health care organizations. If these initiatives are successful, and many are already in existence, health professionals hope that they can contribute to a serious commitment to peace. Healing Across the Divides aims to draw attention to challenges and opportunities in these initiatives through grants to Palestinian and Israeli organizations leading to improved health for their constituents. We also sponsor speaking tours and informal meetings in the United States, Europe and within Israeli and/or Palestinian territory.
