Health Workers Under Attack

The PHM online gallery portrays individual cases of health workers worldwide facing several forms of repression, whose political and civil liberties, and in some cases even lives, are at stake. Attacks against health workers impede people from getting the necessary healthcare, violating international humanitarian law. PHM country circles and activists identified these emblematic cases and campaign to seek justice. With this gallery we hope to raise awareness of the problem, strengthen campaigns of PHM country circles seeking justice, and share activities and calls to action.
