The event, hosted by the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies, Center for Social Justice, The GU Medical Center and the Institute for the Study of International Migration on Tuesday in the ICC Auditorium, included a screening of the BBC Panorama film, "Saving Syria's Children" and concluded with a question and answer panel with medical experts Dr. Annie Sparrow and Dr. HishamNaji. .
We are all criminals for doing our jobs … As doctors, as aid workers, as paramedics, we depend upon the laws of war and humanitarian efforts in order to give aid … But Assad has actually turned all the laws of war upside down in order to control society," Sparrow, the Deputy Director of the Human Rights Program at the Icahn School of Medicine and an assistant professor of global health, said.
Since the fighting began, the focus of the already scarce Syrian medical centers has been on treating wounded soldiers, not everyday medical issues. Civilian cases simply are not the priority near fighting areas. Consequently, a lack of vaccines distributed to children has resulted in a surge in polio.
"With taxes against doctor [visits], the structure of the healthcare system, combined with millions and millions of civilians forced to live in refugee camps that are overcrowded, unhygienic … the most appalling, unsanitary conditions, it's no surprise that polio is back," Sparrow said.

Human Rights Watch workers gave crayons and paper to children in seven refugee camps along Darfur's border with Chad to keep them occupied as they interviewed their parents about the ethnic violence and starvation that has engulfed hundreds of villages in Darfur, said a Human Rights Watch researcher, Annie Sparrow. "When I first started collecting them, they were so shocking," Sparrow said of the drawings."It's not just that the children are scarred and traumatized by awful atrocities but the way they're devising this unique visual vocabulary that corroborates all the testimony we've taken from adults. "These are not generic guns that a 10-year-old boy would draw but guns they've actually seen," said Sparrow, who is a pediatrician."I sat down with a weapons expert who identified what the weapons were." Sparrow also contends that the details in the drawings provide more evidence of the involvement of the Sudan government. "The government of Sudan has repeatedly denied being involved in the crisis, but the janjaweed only have guns and horse and camels," she said.
