Changes in medical practice in Syria

Over what has now been nearly six years of war, Syrians have suffered immeasurably. Amidst the brutality of the Syrian conflict, violence against medical facilities, staff and patients has become horrifyingly routine. In 2016 alone, 81 medical facilities have been damaged or destroyed in Azaz and Aleppo districts, some repeatedly. This follows 94 attacks on MSF-supported facilities in 2015, which killed 81 healthcare staff.
