Quote

 

"Aid workers place themselves in harm's way in order to fulfill their professional duties. The deliberate targeting of the health sector in conflict settings increases that risk. Legislation needs to be implemented here in the United States in order to protect military and civilian Americans working abroad."
Dabney Evans and Lara Martin, The Hill, May 6, 2016
