About Us | Annual Gala

The Physicians for Human Rights Gala honors the work of health professionals working on the front lines to defend human rights. Join us to support PHR’s work advocating for persecuted health workers and health facilities under attack, preventing torture, sexual violence, and mass atrocities, and holding those who violate human rights accountable.
