Regional delegation in Beijing - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

Present in the region since 1987, the ICRC moved its regional delegation for East Asia to Beijing in 2005. The delegation fosters support among governments, experts and National Societies for humanitarian principles, IHL and ICRC activities in the region and worldwide. It promotes the incorporation of IHL into national legislation, military training and academic curricula. It also supports the region’s National Societies in developing their dissemination and tracing activities. ICRC/National Society prosthetic/orthotic projects in China and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea contribute to meeting the need for affordable, goodquality prostheses.
