Health Strategy 2020–2023 – Effectively Addressing the Health Needs of People Affected by Armed Conflict and Other Violence
Health Strategy 2020–2023 builds on Health Strategy 2014–2018 and addresses the increasing volume of unmet humanitarian health needs, many of which result from: protracted conflict, poverty and climate-related shocks; severe shortages in the global health workforce and weakened health systems; and the increasingly challenging and complex humanitarian space. This strategy, supplemented by a four-year implementation roadmap, guides health operations for the period 2020–2023. It is aligned with the ICRC Strategy 2019–2022, in that it emphasizes ensuring humanitarian action is people-centric, delivered in collaboration as much as possible, and forward-looking (i.e. seeking to make a sustainable humanitarian impact).
