About the Event

Please join us for a discussion about the joint London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine/Johns Hopkins University report titled “Crisis in Gaza: Scenario-Based Health Impact Projections”, which has projected the number of excess deaths over the next few months in the strip based on a variety of scenarios. The report estimates more than 75,000 lives can be saved if there is a ceasefire. Read the full report here.

Over the last few months, more than 30,000 Palestinians have died in the war on Gaza. Disease, starvation and malnutrition now threaten the population - already a number of children have died of malnutrition. The UN is warning that famine is imminent. A number of human rights organizations, aid agencies and US senators have accused Israeli forces of obstructing and limiting the delivery of aid. As the LSHTM/JHU report outlines, this is a grave public heath catastrophe that demands immediate attention.
