[Editorial] Syria: a health crisis too great to ignore

Last week, the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic gave an evidence update to the 32nd session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland. It reported that the Syrian Government was conducting daily air strikes in the country amid indiscriminate attacks by militant groups, including ISIS. Paulo Pinheiro, chair of the Commission, said that schools, hospitals, mosques, and water stations “are all being turned into rubble” and tens of thousands of people were trapped between front lines and international borders.
