    ​In accordance with the belief that proper medical care is a universal right transcending barriers of ideology and political borders, Israel's hospitals are open to all seeking their expertise. Over the years, patients have come for specialized treatment from all over the world, including countries with which Israel has no diplomatic relations.

    In many parts of Asia and Africa, Israeli doctors and nurses are providing assistance in treating diseases which have been virtually eradicated in developed countries, and share their skills with local medical personnel on exchange programs, some held under the auspices of the World Health Organization. Israeli medical teams also participate in relief efforts in disaster areas.​
