Women In Syria

EDM number 480 in 2017-19, proposed by Timothy Farron on 31/10/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Children and families, Equality, Health services, Human rights, International politics and government and Middle East.

That this House notes that, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, 11,427 of the 331,765 documented casualties of the Syrian conflict are women, recognises that, according to the World Health Organisation, 57 per cent of Syria's public hospitals have been damaged while 37 per cent are no longer functioning due to ongoing fighting; regrets that two thirds of maternal deaths globally occur in conflict-ridden countries; expresses concern that women and girls in Syria experience high levels of gender-based violence and lack access to healthcare facilities; further regrets the psychological trauma experienced by women and girls who are living through the Syrian conflict; and urges the Government to support, with ring-fenced funding, the efforts of local organisations inside Syria that provide specific health care for women and girls, including psychological support services.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs.
