UAPD Statement on Humanitarian Aid in Gaza

The Union of American Physicians and Dentists (UAPD) calls for a ceasefire to establish permanent medical and humanitarian aid corridors in Gaza. Further, we call on all Heads of State, the UN Security Council, and actors on the ground to prioritize the preservation of civilian lives.

We call on all parties to unconditionally:

  • Facilitate the delivery of lifesaving assistance, including food and medical supplies to innocent civilians.
  • Free all civilian hostages.
  • Allow humanitarian convoys to reach UN facilities, schools, hospitals, and other health care facilities in northern Gaza and commit to protecting them along with their civilians and staff.
  • Allow patients in critical condition to be medically evacuated for urgent care.
