A Matter of Life and Death: Tackling Violence against Health Care in Iraq, Lebanon and the Philippines

This publication presents case studies of initiatives taken to safeguard the delivery of health care in Iraq, Lebanon and the Philippines. Each initiative was designed to prevent or minimize the impact of violence against health-care staff and facilities.
The cases studies are intended chiefly for humanitarian and health workers and will be of especial interest to people belonging to the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.
The aim in publishing them is to share lessons learned and to stimulate discussion – with officials, legislators, policymakers, etc. – as to how to tackle this critical issue.
