Who We Are

Project Rozana is a global organization registered in Switzerland. We are proud to have established affiliates in key locations such as Australia, Canada, Germany, Israel, the UK, and the USA. Our dedicated regional operations team operates from Jerusalem, and is committed to fostering collaborative health initiatives that transcend borders, uniting Palestinians and Israelis with the common goal of saving lives.

We are dedicated to peacebuilding between Israelis and Palestinians through initiatives that provide equitable access to healthcare.

We understand the complex political challenges that come with the regional conflict, and believe that investing in programs that improve health outcomes for both sides is a powerful way to bring people together.

We invest on a large scale, working with the Palestinian health network to identify needs and fund strategies that empower local health professionals with the skills they need to address gaps in care.

Our Mission

We aim to create a cross-border cohort of health professionals who know each other and can work together to fight their common enemy: disease.

We believe that by training healthcare professionals on both sides of the conflict to work together, we can create a force multiplier for peacebuilding and help build a sustainable path towards peace.

Join us in our mission to save lives and build peace through cross-border people-to-people initiatives.

What We Do

We have built an infrastructure of partner hospitals in the region that enables us to identify health development gaps, create optimal models to close these gaps, and cultivate empathy between Palestinians and Israelis on three inter-dependent levels.

Our Work: Creating a Bridge of Healing

Project Rozana connects partner hospitals in the region, allowing us to identify and address critical gaps in health development. Through our dedicated efforts, we develop optimal models that close these gaps, fostering empathy and understanding between Palestinians and Israelis. Our work operates on three interconnected levels, uniting individuals and communities in pursuit of healing and harmony.

Institutional Impact: Fostering Collaborative Partnerships

At Project Rozana, we play a pivotal role in facilitating partnerships between hospitals in Palestine and Israel. Through these partnerships, we enable the exchange of expertise and knowledge, resulting in enhanced healthcare services and improved benefits for patients. By fostering collaboration, we strive to create a healthcare ecosystem that transcends political boundaries, prioritizing the well-being of individuals and communities in the region. Together, we pave the way for transformative advancements in healthcare delivery, ensuring that patients receive the best possible care. 

Individual Impact: Connecting Healthcare Professionals 

We inspire connections between Palestinian and Israeli healthcare professionals, creating a platform for knowledge-sharing and learning. This collaboration enhances understanding of medical practices, innovative approaches, and cultural perspectives. Through these connections, professionals gain insights, expand expertise, and develop relationships that transcend politics. This has a positive ripple effect on communities, improving healthcare services and patient outcomes.  

Grassroots Empowerment: Enhancing Healthcare and Building Bridges 

At Project Rozana, we believe in the power of grassroots initiatives to transform healthcare and foster meaningful connections. Our health interventions are designed to improve the quality of healthcare received by patients, while simultaneously creating opportunities for interaction and understanding between Palestinians and Israelis. By focusing on the grassroots level, we aim to bring communities together, fostering empathy and mutual understanding.  

At Project Rozana, our approach to healthcare delivery centers around collaboration and partnership. We firmly believe that by working together, we can achieve far more than by working alone. We understand the value of bringing together individuals from diverse backgrounds and perspectives. Through collaboration, we break down barriers and leverage the collective expertise and resources of our diverse network. By fostering inclusive partnerships, we unlock innovative solutions, drive meaningful change, and enhance the well-being of all involved. We are committed to building bridges, fostering collaboration, and creating a healthcare landscape that thrives on unity and cooperation. Together, we can create a future where health knows no boundaries.

Our Values

Respect. We are committed to treating everyone with dignity and consideration, and we strive to create an environment of mutual respect and understanding.

Empathy. We believe that by empathizing with others, we can build stronger relationships and make a greater impact. 

Inclusivity. We are dedicated to including all voices in the conversation and creating an open and welcoming environment within our organization.

These values guide our decision-making and inform our actions, and we believe that only by living these values, we can create positive change in the world.

Our Aims

At Project Rozana, our aim is to improve healthcare outcomes and build bridges between Palestinians and Israelis. We believe that healthcare is a human right and that everyone should have access to high-quality healthcare services, regardless of their background or circumstances.

Our Vision

Project Rozana's commitment to cultivating empathy between Israelis and Palestinians through healthcare initiatives is an important step towards creating a more peaceful and cooperative environment. By addressing critical gaps in the healthcare system and promoting equality of access to healthcare services, Project Rozana is helping to build a more inclusive and equitable society for all.

About Rozana

The story of Rozana Salawhi is at the heart of Project Rozana's mission. Her life-saving treatment in an Israeli hospital highlighted the importance of cross-border cooperation and empathy between Israelis and Palestinians. Project Rozana was founded to build on this example and create more opportunities for joint initiatives that bridge the divide between communities and promote equal access to healthcare for all.
