Targets of the World

International humanitarian law is being flouted on a daily basis.
In areas that are suffering, doctors and nursing staff are now being targeted.

This is despite the fact that on 3 May 2016, the United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution strongly condemning acts of violence, attacks and threats directed at ill and injured patients, nursing staff, humanitarian workers and medical facilities.

More than a year after, nothing has changed. The international community is failing to honour its commitments. More serious yet is the fact that countries which are permanent members of the Security Council are directly or indirectly participating in violating these laws by providing military support and selling arms to certain States where international humanitarian law is disregarded.

Help us remain Doctors of the World.
