Contents: Social and political determinants of health are responsible for health inequities, i.e. unfair
and avoidable differences in health status. Such determinants are extremely relevant for Palestinians
and also Palestine refugees which is the largest and oldest refugee populations in the world. The longstanding
refugee status, coupled with social, economic and security instabilities made already
vulnerable Palestine refugees most vulnerable. There will be analysis and discussion of social and
political determinants of health that are negatively affecting the well-being of Palestinians.
