Jonathan Fine, MD, of Cambridge, one of the founders of Physicians for Human Right, died last week: “We’re never going to be deprived of an opportunity to combat injustice.”

The Globe reports the death of Jonathan Fine, MD, one of the founders of Physicians for Human right, which the paper describes as a “worldwide advocacy organization.”

Over the past three decades, the organization has investigated and documented the medical effects of war crimes and mass atrocities in more than 60 nations around the world — in its early days often with Dr. Fine leading the way, bearing witness to abuses in places such as Iraq and South Korea.
