You work in the Palestinian Territories but not in Israel? Do you support the Palestinian cause?

● No. MSF does not take sides. Our programmatic decisions in the area are based on identifiable medical needs and a lack of available necessary care.
 
● Israel has good medical and mental health services and has not needed our support (during the 2006 war between Hezbollah and the Israeli Defense Forces, Israel declined our services).
