By ICRC (Author)
Published : 2011


This study is based on an analysis of reports collected over a two and-a-half year period describing 655 violent incidents affecting health care in 16 countries where the ICRC is operational. The reports were obtained from humanitarian agencies, including the ICRC, and from open sources such as the media and websites. Standard software applied to a statistical model for analysing reports of such events was used.
