The Shira Pransky Project is proud to describe our ongoing collaboration with The Society for Patients’ Rights in Israel, a volunteer organization that assists patients and their families secure their rights and receive service in the health system. The Society provides a wide-range of valuable services to patients and their family members, including:
They have also established The Coalition of Healthcare Rights Organizations that holds several meetings of participating organizations annually and advances initiatives throughout the year to promote the agenda of advancing patients’ rights and awareness.
The Shira Pransky Project has translated much of the important information for the Society’s website. Only a fraction of this content has already been posted to the English side of their site, while much more will become available very soon as they transition to a completely new design. Meanwhile, even more of their content has been adapted and posted here at ShiraPranskyProject.org, and we are continuing to add more every week.
In continuing cooperation between the two organizations, The Society for Patients’ Rights has recently distributed our Health Organization Engagement Letter to dozens of Israeli organizations, offering free translation of relevant Hebrew materials into English and other assistance in engaging and making information more accessible for the English-speaking community in Israel. Several organizations have already contacted us and we are currently in the process of addressing their needs and evaluating options for increasing their English accessibility.
Our on-going cooperation with The Society for Patients Rights’ in Israel has established our model for productive collaborations with Israeli health organizations, and we look forward to many more successful relationships with the numerous other organizations that need our help to increase accessibility and awareness of rights and support for Israel’s English-speaking community!
