Ensuring the safety of health-care facilities: an online discussion

24-09-2013 Event

If in times of peace, health-care facilities can be a stressful environment to work in, imagine what can happen during an armed conflict or other emergency, when they are usually more solicited, function under threat or are directly targeted. At the end of a Health Care in Danger expert workshop, a livestream panel discussion focuses on the need of protection for patients and health-care workers in armed violence. You are welcome to address your questions to the experts.
