Support to our Colleagues in Sri Lanka

Dear members and colleagues,

On Sunday, Sri Lanka became the latest country to fall victim to a terror attack that injured and killed many innocent tourists and civilians. As I write this, I know that many of these victims are being treated by our Sri Lankan colleagues.

The European Society of Intensive Care Medicine would like to express our solidarity and support for all of our members, friends and colleagues who have been affected by this terrible tragedy and the scores of other senseless attacks in recent months.

It is in these dark moments, that we as intensivists and professional caregivers must reiterate our principles of caring for patients and defending of life against any form of violence.
Together, we remain strong.
