A strong resolve to end violence against health care

An open letter to all United Nations Member States:

We continue to sound the alarm. Scores of health-care workers are being killed or injured while caring for sick and wounded men, women and children during armed conflicts. Countless are prevented from carrying out their duties.

We must do more for them and for the civilian populations affected by this unacceptable situation. It's a matter of life and death.

Speech given by Mr Peter Maurer, President of the ICRC, United Nations Security Council Briefing, 3 May 2016, New York, USA

"Even wars have limits, because wars without limits are wars without ends. Health-care personnel and facilities are the outer frontier of these limits."

A couple of months ago, I stood in front of a four-story building.

It was really more a shell of a building, completely bombed out, burned out, ripped apart, steel cables sticking out from the load-bearing walls, rubble all around.
