KHARTOUM JULY 12: The Safeguarding Health in Conflict Coalition has recently released a report on violence and abuse against hospitals and healthcare workers in Sudan. It is not an uplifting read and should fill those responsible with a very great shame. But that will not happen. Al-Burhan does not care and will lie, and Hemetti can not read.
In the report, you can read testimonies as follows.
On April 3, 2021 a clearly marked MSF ambulance traveling to Al-Fasher Hospital in Jebel Marra, West Darfur state was carjacked. The passengers, who included a pregnant woman, had all their belongings stolen and were left by the roadside.
On December 30 coup forces stormed Khartoum Teaching Hospital in search of injured pro-democracy protesters. During the raid coup forces fired large amounts of teargas into the hospital, injuring patients and staff.
Between October 25 and December 31, 2021 coup forces raided hospitals in search of injured protesters at least 25 times in the cities of Khartoum and Omdurman and in North Kordofan state, which were all sites of major demonstrations.
Doctors, psychologists, nursing specialists, and other health care personnel were injured and arrested during these raids. On November 17 – the deadliest day of the protests – coup forces reportedly arrested 15 doctors at the Royal Care Hospital in Khartoum and El Arbaeen Hospital in Omdurman.
There were also reports of police officers sexually assaulting female doctors.
