Description : ICRC website :
The Health Care in Danger project is an ICRC initiative that aims to address the widespread and severe impact of illegal and sometimes violent acts that obstruct the delivery of health care, damage or destroy facilities and vehicles, and injure or kill health-care workers and patients, in armed conflicts and other situations of violence.

The project, which is set to run from 2011 to 2015, will focus on strengthening protection for the sick and wounded in these situations through the adoption of specific measures designed to help ensure that they have safe access to effective and impartial health care. Over the next four years, the ICRC and National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies will urge States party to the Geneva Conventions, the health-care community at large and others concerned to devise concrete solutions and commit themselves to their implementation.
