  • Hodges Health Care Domains Framework
    - This resolution saddens me: that we should need it in the 21st century after millennia of human conflict. The resolution is an essential course of action that I will help to publicize. Resources by way of legal enforcement, financial and personnel as declared in the resolution to protect basic human rights and health care provision must be assured and enforced globally. As per the trend of pursuing those who commit crimes against humanity should be escalated as the means to record and furnish evidence also increases. This is imperative as a deterrent to those who supposedly 'lead' and those who invariably follow. In this sense 'education for all' is crucial to help prevent indoctrination (with an additional health dividend).

  • Doctor Catherine Bonnet, M.D. Consultant in child and adolescent psychiatry, Chevalier de l'Ordre de la L├ęgion d'honneur 2001

    - Violence against innocents during an armed conflict is absolutely unconscionable. We must do as much as possible to make the words in this resolution a reality.
  • ILS Law College, Pune.
    - It is unconscionable that we so consistently see human rights been attacked, and we fail to defend them in Toto. This resolution definitely stresses the importance of protecting the health of people affected during armed conflicts, and would provide a helping hand through the necessary medical assistance, thereby upholding the basic human rights of every individual. This resolution is, therefore the need of the hour and deserves our support in every way possible.
  • Vivekakananda Law School, Indraprastha University, New Delhi
    - A new resolution that stresses the importance of health protection during armed conflict has recently been launched. This resolution is an outcome of an international health conference and is part of a wider campaign to restore and strengthen the Geneva Conventions, especially as regards the safe-guarding of health workers and healthcare facilities/equipment/transport during armed conflict-the foundation of international humanitarian law, which, unfortunately, is no longer sacrosanct and is frequently disregarded with shocking ambivalence
  • CHANAKYA NATIONAL LAW UNIVERSITY
    - There is an immediate need for paying attention towards the atrocities being suffered by the people due to the increasing rate of armed conflicts posing threat to the basic humanitarian needs.This resolution sufficiently provides wide scope for the protection of health rights of the people.

  • Dr Kent Thorburn

  • Adoksh Shastry
    - The world is going through a major crisis and Peace is the Global Cry. With the on-going Libiyan crisis and failure to protect those who seek to protect, this resolution is a step towards Protecting the innocent and giving them a safer opportunity to serve!

    - Attacks on health workers do indeed constitute crimes against humanity and the UN should be doing everything possible to ensure that the work of health workers in areas of conflict can proceed without attack.

  • Doctors for Iraq
    - We believe that a protection for health car in conflict zones is essential. As an organisation established during the American invasion of Iraq in 2003 , many of our volunteers injured and some killed during carrying their duties in the field . An international resolution and mechanism which can legislate , enforce or at least monitor any violations are important .. WMA should be taking their responsibility as a medical body recognized internationnally

  • Teaching Aids at Low Cost TALC
