Georgia - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

The ICRC has been present in Georgia since 1992. It contributes to efforts to provide answers to families of missing persons and protects and assists displaced people and other vulnerable groups in conflict-affected regions. It visits detainees throughout Georgia, including Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and provides expertise on health-related issues, particularly tuberculosis, in places of detention. It promotes the national implementation of IHL and its integration into armed and security forces’ doctrine, training and sanctions and into academic curricula. In cooperation with Movement partners, the ICRC helps to strengthen the capacities of the Red Cross Society of Georgia.
