Health care under Fire


In this short video from the International Committee of the Red Cross, Francoise Duroch of Médecins sans Frontières describes how conflict and violence disrupt health care and how medical workers find themselves the direct targets of violence.

She talks about how the stigma attached to sexual violence prevents victims seeking support.

Finally, she explains how MSF is sometimes forced to suspend its activities and the conditions under which the organization will go public about a situation.

The ICRC is an observer in the Safeguarding Health in Conflict coalition.
