Don't Let Sanctions Block Medicine for Iranian Civilians


Tens of thousands of Iranian civilians with treatable illnesses have suffered unnecessarily and unjustly because of medicine shortages created in part by U.S. sanctions. This has happened despite the fact that by law, U.S. sanctions are supposed to protect trade in medicines. Moreover, sanctions that block civilians’ access to medicines violate international humanitarian law.

Now, Representative Jim Moran [D-VA] is pressing the White House to ensure that U.S. sanctions do not continue to block life-saving medicine for Iranian civilians.
