The Colorado Medical Society strongly condemns attacks on Ukrainian hospitals, medical facilities and health professionals by Russian forces. Respect for and protection of medical staff and facilities are mandated under the Geneva Conventions. As members of the international medical community, we stand in solidarity with the health professionals of Ukraine who are struggling to continue providing care due to wartime attacks. These attacks on medical personnel and facilities are not only reprehensible acts of cowardice, they are war crimes for which the perpetrators must be held accountable.
