Peace Through Medical Diplomacy
"The Jericho Center of Medical Diplomacy was conceived from a passionate desire
to advance peace in the middle east through health initiatives."
- ROBERT STEVEN KRAMARZ
Why The Jericho Center?
Breast cancer is far too often a death sentence in many Arabic-speaking areas of the middle east. Even when women survive, the suffering during treatment and long-term recovery is far greater than it could be. The biggest barrier is screening – acceptable, easy, non-invasive, and available. The key to transforming breast cancer from a death sentence to a treatable illness is for detection to happen in the early stages. This is when the chances of a cure are greatest and the treatment path leads to healing versus suffering.
The second barrier for these regions is care during recovery. Care has to be culturally sensitive, nurturing and ensure that medical follow-up is available. The Jericho Center project is committed to providing both non-invasive screenings and a nurturing, family environment for healing.
