Shatha Odeh, Palestinian health and human rights activist, was illegally arrested two months ago by Israeli Occupying Forces. She is a dedicated health worker and Director of Health Work Committees, an organisation that has played an important role in providing health care services to a large number of Palestinians. PHM South Africa has sent a letter to Dr Tlaleng Mofokeng, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health asking for urgent intervention for Ms. Odeh’s release from the prison. Read the letter here.
