ICRC report intended to help hospitals prepare for and manage situations that could jeopardize maintaining the health of people affected by armed conflict and other emergencies.

This publication is intended as a practical manual for governments, hospital managers and others concerned, with a view to helping them prepare for and manage situations that could jeopardize their objective of assisting the wounded and sick and maintaining the health of people affected by armed conflict and other emergencies. Built on the recommendations that emerged from two Health Care in Danger experts' workshops on ensuring the safety of health-care facilities, which took place in Ottawa, Canada, in 2013 and Pretoria, South Africa, in 2014; this publication has also benefited from contributions by the Canadian Red Cross Society, the Egyptian Red Crescent Society, the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, the International Federation of Hospital Engineering, the International Hospital Federation, Médecins Sans Fontières, the Pan American Health Organization and the World Health Organization.
