The ICRC has been present in Argentina since the 1970s. Our work focuses on the promotion and adoption of international humanitarian law (IHL) by the armed forces and academic communities, and we support the National Committee for the Implementation of IHL. We also work on identifying unidentified Argentine soldiers buried in the Darwin Cemetery in the Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas. Additionally, we cooperate with the Argentine Red Cross.

Our work with the Argentine Red Cross

In the regional delegation, cooperation work is based above all on providing support to the National Society to develop its capacities. Cooperation is an active part of the humanitarian response before, during and after emergencies or conflicts. Among our most important activities are responding to migration in the region, training first aid teams that work in dangerous areas and delicate situations, and strengthening accountability, transparency and financial sustainability mechanisms.
