Abstract: WHO headquarters’ erasure of the Palestinian people from World Health Statistics 2022 and previous issues of World Health Statistics, as noted by Richard Horton,1 is both unacceptable and insulting. This needs to be addressed and remedied as soon as possible. How can WHO’s leadership not recognise the existence of a people in this world? How can it deny Palestinian existence in some publications when WHO’s Director General explicitly links movement restrictions, demolitions, displacements, and the use of excessive force against Palestinians as social determinants of health?
