Regional delegation in Tashkent - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

The regional delegation in Central Asia was opened in 1992. It assists governments in implementing IHL instruments and integrating IHL into academic curricula. It also supports the integration of IHL into armed forces’ doctrine, training and sanctions, and promotes international norms among police and security forces dealing with law enforcement. It also endeavours to protect and assist people detained for security reasons and, in Kyrgyzstan, provides support on health-related issues, particularly tuberculosis, in places of detention. The ICRC contributes to strengthening the capacities of the region’s National Societies, particularly in the fields of restoring family links and promoting IHL.
