Partner Session 05: Health Care in Danger – Violence Against Health Care Workers Must End

-
Hotel Post
Partner / Working Group
english language

Violence against health-care workers and facilities, medical transports and patients during armed conflict and other emergencies is one of the most serious challenges of humanitarian concern in the world today. Violent acts, which limit access to healthcare services for those most in need and disrupt healthcare systems, have severe immediate and long-term consequences. How do we ensure that healthcare personnel know their rights and responsibilities? What is the role of civil society (including media) to highlight this issue? What measures can states, armed actors, the healthcare community and the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement take?
