Presenting a laptop for telemedicine at Allia Government Hospital Hebron, Robin Marsh, Dr Omar Al-Alool and David Sasson.The Holy Land Medical Project is a partnership of Saving Lives, a Rotarian Medical Aid Agency, and the Universal Peace Federation’s Middle East Peace Initiative. It is following a successful model of collaborative health care in parts of India that assisted reconciliation between two communities in conflict.

We will establish a Board of Trustees of the three faith leaders, Israeli and Palestinian Doctors and business managers from both communities to oversee proposed training health centres. With support from the Saving Lives network, UK volunteer Doctors and the international network of Ambassadors for Peace, it is planned to provide medical training courses, telemedicine, exchange visits, and twinning of hospitals.
