IHL Talks: Violence Against Healthcare and Humanitarian Workers
Description: Violence against health care facilities and humanitarian workers remains a recurring and preoccupying issue in today’s world. Paradoxically, this takes place within a well-accepted framework of protection of health care facilities and medical or humanitarian personnel under international humanitarian law (IHL), which rules and principles are not contested either by states or non-state armed groups. This IHL Talk, organized with the support of the ICRC, aims at reflecting on the reasons why health care and humanitarian workers are being targeted despite their protection under IHL and what policy tools can be elaborated to implement and ensure better respect of the law by the different parties in armed conflicts. Moderation Imogen Foulkes, BBC Geneva Correspondent Panelists Babak Ali Naraghi, Head of Health Care in Danger Project, International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Robert Kolb, Professor of Public International Law, University of Geneva and Geneva Academy Caroline Abu-Sada, Director of the Research Unit on Humanitarian Stakes and Practices (UREPH), MSF Switzerland

Syrian doctors targeted and under siege
Description: Doctors in Syria are under siege and targeted, a UN Human Rights Council side event has heard. “We know inside Syria that the health workers are the most targeted people. Sometimes they are more targeted than military, than the soldiers because the presence of health services is so important to life. If there are no health services, everything will stop,” Abdurrahman Alomar, a Syrian paediatrician, working in Aleppo has said. The Syrian doctor who addressed the side event titled: “Prevention of child mortality and human rights: an unfinished agenda, decried the dwindling number of health professionals in the war-torn country.
