(Physicians for Human Rights) – The Syrian government’s ongoing assault on health care is one of the most egregious the world has ever seen. PHR has documented the deaths of 687 medical personnel and 329 attacks on medical facilities from the beginning of the conflict through October 2015. This report focuses specifically on the state of health care in eastern Aleppo city – the city hit hardest by such attacks – and tells a story of courage and resilience in the face of tremendous human suffering and loss. PHR’s findings illustrate that unlawful attacks on health have significantly degraded Aleppo’s health care system; more than two-thirds of the hospitals no longer function and roughly 95 percent of doctors have fled, been detained, or killed. However, the remaining medical personnel have persevered and manage to provide health care in the midst of a horrific war, despite minimal access to equipment and medication.
