Dr. Jarrar works with the Palestinian Medical Relief Society (PMRS) maintaining health centers, clinics, and rehabilitation programs, and training women as health workers. He was instrumental in launching the Palestinian call for Boycott/Divestment/Sanctions (BDS).
Dr. Marton observed the conditions in Gaza’s hospitals in 1988, motivating her to found Physicians for Human Rights-Israel, focusing on health in Occupied Palestine and in Israel. She also works for women’s rights and won the 2010 Right Livelihood Award.
Their two organizations collaborate closely, especially helping transport patients through the barriers imposed by the occupation. This national tour promotes the Boycott/Divestment/Sanctions strategy to bring attention to the injustices of the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
