At a time when the world needs our health care workers more than ever, why are some being targeted, and what can we do to protect them and better support them in their critical roles during the COVID-19 pandemic?
In collaboration with the leadership of the World Medical Association and the International Council of Nurses, Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) published a Comment piece in The Lancet on May 20, 2020 entitled, “Attacks Against Health-Care Personnel Must Stop, Especially as the World Fights COVID-19.”
Dr. Richard Horton, editor-in-chief and publisher of The Lancet and a PHR board member, will lead a conversation with the authors of this piece. The discussion will highlight recent attacks on health care workers and necessary actions to protect them (and in turn, the patients and communities they serve) during the COVID-19 pandemic and going forward.
Panelists will be:
• Howard Catton, RN, MA, CEO, International Council of Nurses
• Michele Heisler, MD, MPA, medical director, Physicians for Human Rights; professor of internal medicine and public health, University of Michigan Medical School
• Otmar Kloiber, MD, PhD, secretary general, World Medical Association
