In health emergencies as in periods of stability, restoring access to primary health-care services is a priority in so far as many problems can be dealt with by means of preventive care and conventional therapy. Depending on the context, the ICRC must often take in action in this area, taking into account the level of emergency, the involvement of other actors, the possible evolution of the situation and the organization's operational strategies.
This publication presents the various procedures used by the ICRC for its primary health-care interventions and the role played by these interventions in an integrated approach to assistance activities and the ICRC's action as a whole.
