Regional delegation in Bangkok - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

Having first established a presence in Bangkok in 1975 to support its operation in Cambodia, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic and Viet Nam, the ICRC now works to promote the ratification and implementation of humanitarian treaties and the integration of IHL into military training in all the countries covered. It strives to raise awareness of issues of humanitarian concern and supports National Societies in developing their dissemination and tracing activities. The ICRC visits detainees of concern in Cambodia and Thailand and works to protect and assist vulnerable populations. The ICRC prosthetic/orthotic project in Cambodia contributes to meeting the need for affordable, good-quality prostheses.
