ICRC, 2015, DVD / English, French / Reference AV151
This publication is intended as a practical manual for governments, hospital managers and others concerned, with a view to helping them prepare for and manage situations that could jeopardize their objective of assisting the wounded and sick and maintaining the health of people affected by armed conflict and other emergencies.
Safe access to health care is essential for both civilians and combatants in conflict situations. But for this to happen, health-care personnel have to be respected and protected by all parties to a conflict and be able to perform their humanitarian duty without fearing for their safety.
ICRC, A4, 80 pp., Brochure / English / Reference 4243
This publication draws attention to one of the most crucial yet overlooked humanitarian issues of today: violence against health care. Attacking health-care structures and personnel, and ambulances – as well as deliberately obstructing the efforts of the wounded to find help – are common features of conflicts throughout the world.
This brochure explains some of the jobs you could be doing with the ICRC. It includes useful links to the ICRC on Facebook, YouTube and other sites. And a whole chapter is devoted to the benefits the ICRC offers its employees.
In a world wracked by conflict and armed violence, the ICRC brings hope and humanity to millions of people across the globe.

Neutral and independent, the ICRC is part of the world's largest humanitarian movement, bringing assistance to those in need, regardless of race, religion or politics.
