For the past 30 years, Physicians for Human Rights Israel’s mobile clinic has been providing vital medical treatment to Palestinian villages throughout the West Bank.

During the COVID-19 crisis, with many West Bank villages under strict curfew to prevent the disease from spreading, the clinic, managed by Salah Haji Yehiye, has become an even more vital lifeline for Palestinian villagers. The clinic also serves as a mobile pharmacy dispensing life-saving medications in areas where access to healthcare is severely limited.

During a tour of 10 villages earlier this month, the clinic visited the village of Naalin near Ramallah, where it dispensed vital treatments for cancer, diabetes, and other chronic conditions as well as psychiatric medications.
