Medical student killed in Nicaragua

The killing of a medical student in Nicaragua has been condemned by the World Medical Association (WMA).

Brazilian student, Rayneia Lima, was shot while driving home from her hospital shift in Managua, Nicaragua’s capital city. 

WMA President, Dr Yoshitake Yokokura, said this was a tragic death and illustrated the high risks that doctors in Nicaragua are taking every day in coping with the breakdown of the country’s public health care system.

“We repeat our warning about the rapidly deteriorating situation in the country. Attacks on health workers, medical vehicles, and hospitals are unacceptable.

“The Nicaraguan Government must immediately end this state of affairs.

“The breakdown of law and order has undermined basic health care in the country and is endangering all those medical staff who are striving to deliver health care in the midst of this crisis.

“It is the duty of all of us to do what we can to bring this appalling situation to an end.”
