We call your attention to the plight of two well-known Iranian HIV/AIDS physicians, Drs. Kamiar and Arash Alaei, and urge you to sign a petetion to the Government of Iran on their behalf.
Drs. Kamiar and Arash Alaei, who are brothers, stood up for the health and human rights of the people of Iran; but instead of being rewarded for their ground-breaking work, they’ve been thrown into the notorious Evin Prison. Their crimes: practicing good medicine and sharing public health knowledge with colleagues across the globe. Their imprisonment robs the world of two great physicians and has a chilling effect on public health dialogue and diplomacy worldwide.
Full information on the doctors’ current situation can be accessed at http://iranfreethedocs.org/petition/, where you will also find, along with an on-line petition, links full information on the doctors’ situation and other ways you can be of help.
Please sign the petition … and forward this information to your friends and colleagues and as broadly as possible.
Drs. Kamiar and Arash Alaei need your help. Action is urgent and necessary.
