Books To Iraq Initiative

EDM number 1403 in 2005-06, proposed by David Anderson on 17/01/2006.

That this House believes that Iraq has given the world a great legacy of pharmaceutical and medical knowledge; notes that in addition to the recent conflict and continuing violence, two wars and 12 years of sanctions have had a crippling effect on Iraq's pharmacy education and practice, have severely affected access to information resources such as books and journals and have imposed a total isolation from the international scientific community; and supports the new initiative Books to Iraq, which has been created by pharmacists who wish to contribute to rebuilding Iraqi schools of pharmacy by raising money to send them a range of medical and pharmaceutical textbooks because the safe supply of drugs and drug information is an essential tool of public health which will directly help Iraqi universities, academics and students and indirectly help the wider Iraqi population as well as help replenish the knowledge that Iraq held for humanity in the past.

This motion has been signed by a total of 56 MPs.
