The law says hospitals, ambulances and health-care workers must be protected and should never be targeted as they carry out their regular duties. This is often far from the reality. Worldwide, the lack of safe access to health care is causing untold suffering to millions of people.
This publication describes the ICRC approach to providing appropriate surgical care given the constraints of security, limited supplies, limited technology and limited human resources that are inherent to war.

This publication draws attention to one of the most crucial yet overlooked humanitarian issues of today: violence against health care. Attacking health-care structures and personnel, and ambulances – as well as deliberately obstructing the efforts of the wounded to find help – are common features of conflicts throughout the world.
This brochure explains some of the jobs you could be doing with the ICRC. It includes useful links to the ICRC on Facebook, YouTube and other sites. And a whole chapter is devoted to the benefits the ICRC offers its employees.
In a world wracked by conflict and armed violence, the ICRC brings hope and humanity to millions of people across the globe. This film highlights the organization's work to protect and assist victims of war – treating the wounded, providing shelter and clean water, reuniting families and promoting respect for the rules of war. Neutral and independent, the ICRC is part of the world's largest humanitarian movement, bringing assistance to those in need, regardless of race, religion or politics.
