Syrian Physician Discusses Medical Care In Conflict Zones

In a post on the Safeguarding Health in Conflict coalition blog, Sarah Dwyer, a communications manager at IntraHealth International, which is a member of the coalition, writes about Qasem al Zein, a Syrian physician who was head of the hospital at Al Qusair when the country’s revolution began. Qasem has spoken with several media outlets about treating patients in the conflict-ridden country, often in non-sterile environments and without the proper equipment and medicines, Dwyer notes and includes a video profile of Qasem (7/26).
