WMA sends Message of Solidarity to its Japanese Colleagues

(16.03.2011) Dr. Wonchat Subhachaturas, President of the WMA, said:

'The World Medical Association would like to express solidarity with

Japanese physician colleagues in their hour of need, appreciating that
their expertise is being tested to extremes and thinking of them at
this terrible time for their country.

'Having seen the terrible pictures flashed around the world of the
earthquake and tsunami damage, our members appreciate the strain under
which Japanese medical services must be working, well knowing that the
threatening nuclear catastrophe will make their work and life even
more difficult. We ask all our national medical association members to
consider what assistance they can offer.'
