All about Health Care in Danger

25-07-2012

Health Care in Danger is an ICRC-led, Red Cross / Red Crescent Movement-wide initiative that aims to address the widespread and severe impact of illegal and sometimes violent acts that obstruct the delivery of health care, damage or destroy facilities and vehicles, and injure or kill health-care workers and patients, in armed conflicts and other emergencies. This page contains links to all the information that forms the basis of the project.
