(SAMS) – On March 12, 2018, the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS), along with 11 other humanitarian organizations working inside Syria, shared the coordinates of 60 health facilities in Syria with UN OCHA. As part of the process, OCHA then shared the coordinates with the parties involved in the Syrian conflict. After more than seven years of relentless and systematic attacks on healthcare across Syria resulted in no meaningful accountability, this measure represents a last-resort decision on the part of our combined organizations, as we seek to protect our staff and their patients and deter future attacks, and to potentially implement a process for investigating every alleged attack on healthcare throughout Syria in the future.
