Canadian Medical Association

The Canadian Medical Association (CMA) condemns the pervasive violation of the independence and security of the Iranian medical community in the weeks following the death of Iranian protestor Mahsa Amini. We join the international community in denouncing the human rights violations against women that led to Amini’s death.

The CMA stands in solidarity with our Iranian colleagues who have been at the forefront of ensuing protests and who have been subject to violence and detainment. The ability of physicians and other health care workers to treat their patients in accordance with medical standards and international laws must be protected. 

Dr. Alika Lafontaine
President, Canadian Medical Association
