World Health Day: Attacks on patients and health personnel continue

Health personnel suffered over 1,800 violent incidents during 2013. As the report says, providing health care has remained as dangerous as ever over the last two years. In addition to reporting on attacks, the study highlights lesser-known types of incident, such as armed personnel disrupting hospital services by forcing their way in, or sexual violence against health personnel.

"Media reports only highlight violence affecting health services in just a few conflict-stricken countries, such as Syria," said Pierre Gentile, head of the ICRC-led "Health Care in Danger" project on the dangers facing health-care services. "However, the ICRC report shows that the violence occurs in other countries too. It is therefore urgent that governments, armed forces and the health-care community step up their efforts to make health-care delivery safer all over the world."
