„Health in Gaza: Bear­ing Wit­ness and Build­ing Sol­i­dar­i­ty with Pales­tini­ans. A con­ver­sa­tion on the polit­i­cal econ­o­my of health, right to health in Gaza, and resistance”

With star­va­tion being used as weapon of war in occu­pied Pales­tine, the denial of health care and forced dis­place­ment con­tin­ues to be a real­i­ty for entire pop­u­la­tion in Gaza. We aim to open a con­ver­sa­tion on the polit­i­cal econ­o­my of health care, what does it mean to be a health care prac­ti­tion­er or patient seek­ing right to health. How does one go beyond bear­ing wit­ness and build­ing active solidarity.
