Insecurity Insight - Data on people in danger
Violence preventing delivery of healthcareprojects


On 10 August 2011 the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) launched the project on Health Care in Danger that highlights violence against patients and health-care workers as one of the most crucial yet overlooked humanitarian issues of today.

The British Medical Journal (BMJ) supports the ICRC campaign (see recent editorial).

The campaign and study are based on the data the ICRC commissioned Christina and Nathan to collect, process and analyse between July 2008 and December 2010. The work is based on reports from the media, humanitarian agencies, and the ICRC field delegations from around the world. (download the 16 country study).

Insecurity Insight continues to monitor events that affect delivery of health care under its Aid Work in Danger project. (link)
