Government Of Sudan ‘Systematically’ Attacking Country’s Health Care Sector

Safeguarding Health in Conflict: Systematic Attack on Health Care in Sudan
Carrie Lyons, senior research program coordinator for the Key Populations Program in the Center for Public Health and Human Rights at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Leonard Rubenstein, founder and chair of the Safeguarding Health in Conflict Coalition, examine the humanitarian situation in Sudan, particularly attacks on the health care sector, noting, “The government [of Sudan] has systematically attacked health care, including violent raids on health facilities, as well as arrests, detainment, and killing of health workers. … The international community has the responsibility to call attention to citizens in need — including health workers — and under systematic attack before this crisis escalates” (3/1).
