Speaker: Lisa Schwartz (McMaster University)
Date: Wednesday, 12 November 2014
Location: Room 108, Health Sciences Building, University of Toronto, 155 College Street, Toronto, ON, Canada
A military doctor faces the challenge of unifying two roles difficult to reconcile: soldier and doctor. In the field, this often leads to moral conflicts. In the face of limited funds and resources, who will be treated first—the comrade, the civilian or the enemy?
Attacks on healthcare workers and facilities are increasing, in both conflict and non-conflict settings. The targeting of healthcare workers and facilities has grave consequences for the delivery of care and the right to health in such settings. Join a live-streaming event on Wednesday, 21 May 2014
