    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.’

    When the conflict began in the town, we stayed at home, and the shooting increased. The next day, we got the message that we would each have to find a way to leave on our own. We left and were trying to go to a village, and when we stopped to rest along the way, we saw Jeanne, who was by herself. There was no one there. At first we thought she was just a child like the others…by evening we noticed that no one had come to get her, and that was when we realized that she was alone, and I decided to take her with us. I paid the porters $40 so that she could cross over from the other side of the river. Before coming back down here, we walked around showing Jeanne to different groups of displaced people to see if they recognized her and if they were her family, or knew them. That was how I decided to keep her with me, as my daughter.

    In wartime, children panic, and if you’re not careful, they may run away from home and not return.’

    SRINAGAR, INDIA - OCTOBER 19: A Kashmiri woman lies on a carpet receiving healing prayers and Quranic verses from Munshi Syed Hussain Kazmi, October 19, 2011 in Srinagar, Kashmir, India.  Kazmi is a peer, or spiritual healer. A few months pregnant, the woman is seeking a normal and healthy child birth following an earlier miscarriage she blames on her abusive in-laws. Following decades of militancy and Indian military presence, Kashmiris suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety, or depression have searched for spiritual solace and comfort from peers.  Kashmiris experience one of the world’s highest rates of PTSD in the world.

    Palani Mohan has produced a short video for the 10th International Congress on AIDS in Asia and the Pacific (ICAAP) that was hosted in Busan, Korea from August 26th to the 30th of this year. The video ties in with the UN’s new “Getting to Zero” strategy. By 2015 they are looking to have zero new AIDS infections, zero AIDS related deaths, and zero discrimination towards the people who have been affected by the disease.
