Stuff I read - Attacks on health carers in danger zones

If you are concerned about attacks on hospitals, ambulances and health care workers in situations of armed violence, read this timely summary of the problem by ICRC doctor Robin Coupland, just published in the February issue of Crisis Response, a journal serving the crisis community.

The ICRC, in collaboration with the British Red Cross, the British Medical Association and the World Medical Association is organizing a symposium entitled Healthcare in Danger in London next April.

Dr. Coupland will lead the event and share our analysis of the dangers facing healthcare workers operating in situations of armed violence, with a view to enhance the security and delivery of effective and impartial healthcare in crisis environments.
