"Health care in danger – Meeting the challenges" is a collection of stories from the field. They describe how violence can disrupt the delivery of health care. In some cases, entire communities are left without access to health care and the health system collapses. Ensuring the safe delivery of health care is therefore vital to both the direct victims of violence and those vulnerable to its long-term effects. But the stories also offer a glimpse of hope.
Four years on since the launch of the Health Care in Danger project, this publication brings together recommendations and measures to ensure the safe delivery of health care, and seeks to promote their wider implementation. It also celebrates the courage, determination and compassion of the many health-care workers that strive to reaffirm a space for humanity in war every day.
