UNSC: Meeting on hospital attacks

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) International President, Dr Joanne Liu, addressed the United Nations Security Council on 28 September, 2016, in New York.

Dr Liu's speech reiterated that the USNC is failing to live up to its responsibility to operationalize Resolution 2286, which has to date amounted to empty rhetoric.

Though steps might have been taken, things have deteriorated on the ground since Res. 2286: attacks on the medical mission continue with seeming impunity, from Yemen to Syria.  MSF welcomed the recommendations for implementation and call for immediate operationalization of UNSC 2286. You can watch or read her speech below:
