June 3, 2014

On the occasion of the 11th biennial meeting of the International Human Rights Network of Academies and Scholarly Societies (Network) hosted last week by the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina in Halle, grave human rights abuses perpetrated against scientific colleagues in several countries were presented. In particular, distinguished representatives from 29 national academies discussed and condemned the blatant abuse of health professionals and violation of the principle of medical neutrality in Syria--the primary focus of this statement by the Network's Executive Committee.
