In Solidarity: Murad & Mukwege awarded 2018 Nobel Peace Prize

Oct 6, 2018

HAI would like to express our congratulations and deepest respect to the winners of the 2018 Nobel Prize for Peace, Yazidi rights activist Nadia Murad and Congolese doctor Denis Mukwege. Their tireless efforts to campaign against sexual violence and the use of rape as a weapon of war exemplify a deep commitment to human rights and dignity as well as demonstrate an extraordinary level of bravery.

Murad and Mukwege challenge us to look beyond combat violence and confront the broader implications of war on the physical, mental, and emotional health of communities, willingly or unwillingly, engaged in conflict.  HAI advocates for the use of public health solutions to end war and the protection of all people’s health against the violence of war and armed conflict.

We salute, thank, and lift up these two winners with the utmost admiration.
