What are the main obstacles and challenges to safe access to and provision of health care in conflict for girls, boys, women and men? 

This question is explored in the new report "Study on Access to Health Care during Armed Conflict and Other Emergencies: Examining Violence against Health Care from a Gender Perspective." The report, released by Swedish Red Cross, is part of the Health Care in Danger project (HCiD).
