Letter to Turkish Prime Minister on Legal Action Against Doctors

March 2014

PHR and leading medical organizations sent a letter to Turkish Prime Minister Erdoğan to express concerns over the Ministry of Health taking punitive actions against physicians, including members of the Turkish Medical Association (TMA), who provided emergency medical care to demonstrators during the Gezi Park protests that begain in May 2013. In the letter, we call upon the prime minister to immediately and unconditionally drop the current legal actions against members of the TMA and to respect the professional duty of all medical personnel to provide medical care to those in need, including injured demonstrators. The full letter can be found here.
