The Health Care in Danger (HCiD) project, launched in 2011, is a Movement-wide initiative. The project entails working with States and other influential actors to improve the security of the delivery of effective and impartial health care during armed conflict or other emergencies. Its four priority issues are to safeguard health care against: (i) attacks on services and patients; (ii) unlawful obstruction to the delivery of health services; (iii) discrimination in the treatment of patients; and (iv) armed entry by weapon bearers into health structures. This Special Report follows up on the Special Appeal HCiD 2015 and covers: (i) the HCiD project and its goals for 2012–15; (ii) the developments and activities that took place in 2015 that are directly related to the project; (iii) as examples, the ICRC’s operational activities in six selected contexts, which concretely detail the organization’s on-the-ground efforts to ensure access to quality health care amid insecurity.
