Physicians as Human Rights Advocates
Together with its constituent members, the World Medical Association (WMA) is committed to promoting health-related human rights for all people worldwide. With their unique knowledge and experience, physicians play a key role in providing the best quality care to all patients without discrimination and promoting health-related human rights worldwide. But physicians, as well as patients, can also be victims of human rights abuses. The WMA intervenes to support them and to denounce such violations.
