Armenia - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

The ICRC has been working in Armenia since 1992 in relation to the Nagorny Karabakh armed conflict. It focuses on the issue of missing persons and on detainees held for conflictrelated or security reasons, or who are otherwise vulnerable; promotes health-related issues, particularly tuberculosis control, in places of detention; and monitors the situation of communities along the international border with Azerbaijan. It promotes the national implementation of IHL and its integration into the armed and security forces’ doctrine, training and sanctions and into academic curricula. The ICRC works to strengthen the capacities of the Armenian Red Cross Society.
