Health Rights Issue Emerges in El Salvador
Science. 1983 Mar 4; 219(4588): 1047-1048.

Their findings paralleled those of an earlier delegation--"a virtually complete breakdown of the health system" and continuing violence against health professionals. A number of scientific organizations in the U.S. are reported to be exploring ways to channel private aid from health professionals and to protect the rights of patients and health personnel without antagonizing the government of El Salvador.
