[Correspondence] Health equity in Israel

In their Series paper, A Mark Clarfield and colleagues (June 24, 2017, p 2503)1 stated that, during six decades of progress, Israel has developed a solid public health system with reasonable health indices over the lifespan of the Israeli population. This introduction explicitly refuses to address the roots of one of Israel’s most urgent health issues: the preventable premature morbidity and mortality of Palestinians, whether citizens of Israel or residents of the occupied Palestinian territory.
