"Do No Harm" – Medact meeting on war, arms trade & health
Earlier this month, over 276 health workers sent a letter to the UK government urging them to stop supporting the arms trade and arms fairs such as DSEI.
We held a meeting on 30 September 2019 to discuss the intersections between health, war, the arms trade and human rights.
The 3 speakers on the panel were:
- Rita Dayoub, Syrian dentist, Academy Fellow at Chatham House and founder of Health Workers at the Frontline
- Dr. Sara Beleil, consultant psychiatrist and Academic Secretary of the Sudan Doctors’ Union UK
- Ann Feltham, Parliamentary coordinator at Campaign Against the Arms Trade
The meeting was chaired by Reem Abu-Hayyeh, Medact’s Peace & Security Campaigner.
