Media professionals are often exposed to serious danger when reporting from war zones or other areas associated with armed violence. The ICRC operates a hotline enabling journalists, their families and the media organizations they work for to request assistance if they are wounded, detained or missing. This brochure explains how to get in touch with the ICRC and how the organization might be able to help.
