[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] I was very surprised to read Judith's post attached to Ghazwan's latest post. It seems somewhat hypothetical to say that if all the hospitals in the world were closed down, this would have very little effect on child mortality rates. Very often hypotheses are disproved by fact. I am struggling to imagine how children who are suffering from malnutrition and disease are put at no disadvantage because there is no medical care available to them. Surely having qualified doctors at hand with the necessary equipment and medicines would improve the chances of the sick? Have I misread the post or am I the only one who finds it incredible that somebody can say that the availability of health care is of minor concern? _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
