In Iran, the ICRC promotes IHL and works with the authorities in Iran and Iraq to address the consequences of the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war, particularly the issue of missing persons. We support local initiatives to mitigate risks related to people’s health and their exposure to mines and explosive remnants of war, and support access to health care for Afghan migrants. We work in partnership with the Iranian Red Crescent Society and other Iranian organizations and bodies in the fields of tracing, physical rehabilitation and international relief efforts.
