IFHHRO has started a campaign in support of the Russian Alliance of Doctors, members of which have been harrassed for raising awareness about the lack of personal protective equipment in health facilities, among others.
Yesterday, we sent letters to the World Medical Association, the International Council of Nurses and the Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health, urging them to take a stand.
As of today, concerned health workers all over the world can submit a message of support to the staff and members of the Alliance of Doctors. We will collect these comments and send them to the Russian authorities in due time.
