Letter to Turkish Minister of Health on Draft Health Law

November 2013

PHR and leading medical organizations sent a letter to the Turkish Minister of Heath expressing concern about a draft health law being considered by the Turkish parliament. The proposed law would criminalize the provision of emergency health care in Turkey and provide the Ministry of Health with unprecedented control over health care practices in the country. PHR and partner organizations call on the Ministry of Health to eliminate Article 33 from the draft health law and to exclude any provisions that would undermine independent, ethical, non-discriminatory care to those in need. The full letter can be found here.
