A Matter of Life and Death: Tackling Violence against Health Care in Pakistan, Peru and El Salvador
This publication compiles case studies of initiatives taken to safeguard the delivery of health care in Pakistan, Peru and El Salvador. Each initiative was designed to prevent or minimize the impact of violence against health-care staff and facilities. The cases studies are intended chiefly for humanitarian and health-care workers and will be of special interest to people belonging to the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. The aim in publishing them is to share lessons learned and to stimulate discussion – with officials, legislators, policymakers, etc. – as to how to tackle this critical issue.
