The Ontario Medical Students Association echoes the growing and urgent appeals for a lasting humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza. We align ourselves with over 260 Canadian humanitarian, civil society, faith, and community organizations endorsing the ceasefirenow statement. As future healthcare professionals we are deeply concerned about the complete collapse of Gaza’s healthcare system and extremely limited access to life saving provisions for innocent Palestinians.
The escalating violence has resulted in immense human suffering. We also express our deep concern for the hostages held captive and call for their immediate and unconditional release, advocating for the fundamental human rights and safety of all individuals.
During these challenging times, we must find our shared humanity and champion inclusive spaces for every member of our community.
