When medical workers are killed, the human toll is not just their lives, but also the exponential number of people who will suffer without treatment and the many lives that will be lost as a result. When these attacks on health care become as prolonged and widespread as they have in Syria, the consequences reach far beyond the individuals and facilities lost.
Partners of Physicians for Human Rights (PHR), Dr. Lena and Dr. Nour, have risked their lives to provide medical care in Syria and to document human rights abuses, including torture and sexual violence, committed against their patients. PHR honored Dr. Lena and Dr. Nour at our 2016 Gala to recognize their important contributions to the Syrian people and for their efforts at attaining justice.
