About the event

While the protection of health care goes back to the very origins of the International Red Cross and Crescent Movement, special attention has been devoted the protection of health care over the past decade. The genesis of the Health Care in Danger Project and Initiative was brought about through the adoption of Movement Resolution 5 of the 31st International Conference in 2011 and Resolution 4 of the 32nd International Conference in 2015.

Since 2011, the Movement has significantly contributed to the protection of its own health staff and volunteers and to reducing violence and its impact on health care more broadly. By profiling the experiences of colleagues from the Colombian Red Cross, Somalia Red Crescent Society and Nigerian Red Cross Society, the meeting seeks to cast light on the experiences and contributions within the Movement on the protection of health care with this decade long trajectory in mind.

The protection of health care is an issue of direct relevance internally given that health is the often the largest program of National Societies and externally for communities where we work. All interested National Societies, volunteers and staff both at National HQ and branch levels, in addition to those in the IFRC and ICRC, are welcome to watch the video recording. The event was open to the public; additional information on the meeting can be found here. The Spanish version of the event recording can be found here.
