IMPROVED HEALTH OF PALESTINIANS

in Palestine and the diaspora

We contribute to the protection and improvement of  Palestinians’ health through research, education, capacity strengthening and support for evidence-based policy formulation.

What We Do

Research

ICPH research is integrally linked to training, teaching and advocacy, with a special focus on current and emerging Palestinian need for evidence as a tool for health and social policies and practices.

Teaching

ICPH’s MPH program contributes to health improvement and system building by upgrading and strengthening the conceptual, methodological, and practical capacity of Palestinian health researchers and professionals and improving public health practice.

Capacity Strengthening

ICPH’s mission includes working towards instituting the practice of continuing education among health care providers, an aspect of quality health care provision that is still in the process of being accepted and implemented locally.
