This Health Care in Danger report compiles a complete set of practical measures to be adopted when planning and conducting military operations with a view to avoiding the negative impact of such operations on the delivery of health care in armed conflict.

Many of the practical measures identified can be incorporated into military orders, rules of engagement, standard operating procedures, and other relevant documents and training.
