Azerbaijan - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

The ICRC has been working in Azerbaijan since 1992 in relation to the Nagorny Karabakh armed conflict. It focuses on the issue of missing persons and on detainees held for conflict-related or security reasons, or who are otherwise vulnerable; provides support for health-related issues in places of detention, particularly tuberculosis control; and monitors the situation of communities along the Line of Contact and the international border with Armenia. It promotes the national implementation of IHL and its integration into armed and security forces’ training and into academic curricula. The ICRC works to strengthen the capacities of the Red Crescent Society of Azerbaijan.
