PHR Action Center
Campaign UnavailableWe're sorry, this alert is no longer available. If you would like to learn more about ways you can take action, please visit Physicians for Human Rights.
The short explanation of this alert was:
Physicians for Human Rights condemns the unfair trial and death sentence of five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian physician wrongfully convicted of intentionally infecting more than 400 children with HIV in a Libyan hospital. Repeated scientific studies, including a new study published in the highly respected journal Nature, indicate that a strain of HIV was spreading among the children before the accused nurses and doctor began working at the hospital.
Regardless of where you're from, PHR urges you to contact Senators Joseph Biden (incoming Chair of the Foreign Relations Committee) and Patrick Leahy (incoming Chair of the Appropriations Foreign Operations Subcommittee) to urge them to work with Congress and the Administration to exert more pressure on Libya to release and exonerate the health workers.
For maximum impact, please also follow up your email with phone calls to Senators Biden (202-224-5042) and Leahy (202-224-4242).
