On March 6, 2018, the Institute of Community and Public Health at Birzeit University (ICPH) in partnership with OXFAM Quebec held a dissemination workshop to present the results of a study on the condition of youth in the occupied Palestinian territory. The workshop took place in Birzeit University in the West Bank and in the Center for Media Development for Birzeit University in Gaza City in cooperation with the Media Development Center and the Center for Development Studies in Gaza. The workshop was attended by a number of youth, local and international youth organizations, community-based organizations and a group of political party leaders, ministries and municipalities, along with Palestinian academics, lawyers and human rights activists, and university students. The number of attendees was approximately 140 in Birzeit and 70 in Gaza.
The Institute of Community and Public Health faculty (Rita Giacaman, Weeam Hammoudeh and Abdullatif Husseini) are now part of a regional project entitled: Research for Health in Conflict'.
As part of the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Programme for 2017-2019, a new collaboration was initiated between Birzeit University and Mary Immaculate College (MIC), University of Limerick, Ireland. In October 2017, Birzeit University received the first Irish visitor, Dr. Elaine Murtagh. During her visit Dr. Murtagh met Dr. Amir Khalil, the head of the International Relations Office, where he gave an overview of Birzeit University's operations.
