Syrian Health Workers Struggle With Ethics, Lack Of Facilities In War-Torn Country

Inter Press Service: Syrian Doctors Grapple With Medical Emergency and Ethics
“As once-eliminated diseases resurface and barrel bombs and alleged chlorine attacks target civilians, doctors in rebel-held areas and across the border struggle with issues of how best to serve their profession. Up to 70 percent of Syria’s health workers had fled the country as [of] June last year, according to the World Health Organization, and many of the country’s medical facilities have been destroyed or heavily damaged by regime air strikes…” (Kittleson, 5/19).
