    Reportage Online

    During periods of armed violence, providing health care can become an extraordinarily hazardous undertaking beset by difficulties and threats to safety. Medical teams find themselves operating without basic equipment, and sometimes without even electricity or water. To evacuate or to reach the wounded and the sick in conflict zones, health-care workers sometimes have to put themselves at great risk.

    Health Care in Danger: An Issue for Our Time, a new photo exhibition by the International Committee of the Red Cross, shows that ‘violence against health care is not a recent phenomenon and has never been confined to one place or one period.’
