Description : The Rio Project, carried out between 2009 and 2013, comprised a set of International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) initiatives in partnership with Brazilian governmental agencies, neighbourhood associations and the Brazilian Red Cross (BRC) to mitigate the humanitarian consequences of armed violence.
The experience resulted in integrated action related to health promotion and education that seek to protect the population and develop the resilience of those who live and/or work in favelas in Rio de Janeiro. In places where the State and its structures are still in operation, the ICRC adapts its experience and works in support of local authorities, rather than replace them in the provision of basic services, and supports increased State action. In the case of Rio, some of these initiatives have become public policy.
At the request of local governments, some of the methodologies developed during the Rio Project are being replicated in 12 cities across Brazil, in other Latin American countries and other continents.

The Mental Health and Violence programme empowered residents and health workers to cope with the emotional and psychological issues that arise out of violence in communities. The programme was developed in partnership with the Rio de Janeiro Municipal Secretariat for Health (SMS).
