Zimbabwean Health Workers Call For Crisis Response
Date:11/19/2008

en severely disrupted.
  • FOOD INSECURITY: The government's recent suspension of the delivery of vital humanitarian assistance severely threatens access to a population of 2 million Zimbabweans who depend on assistance from the World Food Programme (WFP). By the end of this year, the number could double, according to the Programme.
  • VIOLENT POLICE CRACK-DOWN ON DEMONSTRATION BY HEALTH PROFESSIONALS: Riot police forcefully dispersed hundreds of doctors, nurses and other health workers who assembled at the Parirenyatwa Hospital in Harare to protest poor salaries and working conditions.
  • MEDICAL SCHOOL CLOSINGS: Early this week, authorities closed indefinitely the country's most prominent medical school and sent students away.

  • Diplomatic isolation and economic sanctions against the Mugabe regime have thus far failed to curtail widespread and systematic human rights violations including willful denial of health care and obstruction of humanitarian aid as well as mass killing, forced displacement, torture and arbitrary arrest. The current government has acted with impunity and must be held to account.

    A letter from PHR's Frank Donaghue on the emergent situation in Zimbabwe can be found at the Physicians for Human Rights web site, http://physiciansforhumanrights.org/library/letter-09-30-2008-frank.html

    Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) mobilizes the health professions to advance the health and dignity of all people by protecting human rights. As a founding member of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, PHR shared the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize.
