ICRC director-general on the importance of health care in conflict areas

ICRC director-general Yves Daccord explains why safe access to health care in armed conflicts and situations of violence is paramount.

Mr. Daccord spoke as he attended the Perspectives photo exhibition on the theme during the London Olympics last month.

The exhibit featured the work of photojournalist Tom Stoddart, whose images show the dangers facing medical staff and patients in war zones.
