INMO statement on attacks on Ukrainian hospitals
Press release 10.3.22

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation has condemned the attack of a maternity hospital in Mariupol, Ukraine.
INMO General Secretary, Phil Ní Sheaghdha said:
“Irish nurses and midwives have looked on in horror at photos and videos of the attack on a maternity hospital in Mariupol. 
“Our members stand in full solidarity with the nurses, midwives and other medical professionals who are working despite the war raging in Ukraine. 
“We have heard through the International Confederation of Midwives and the International Confederation of Nurses how difficult it is on the ground for nurses and midwives in Ukraine. 
“The latest attack on a maternity hospital is truly shocking and our thoughts are with the brave midwives and nurses who were under attack, their families and the patients they were caring for yesterday.
“The protection and safety of our nurses and health systems are paramount and enshrined in international law. We call on all parties involved in the conflict and the international community to do everything in their power to protect the safety of our nurses and midwives who often put themselves in mortal danger to care for others. 
“Access to healthcare and the delivery of humanitarian assistance must remain a priority for all concerned as we see cities under attack and tens of thousands of people being displaced.”
