The ICRC-initiated Health Care in Danger (HCiD) project, which was launched in 2011, is carried out in partnership with other components of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (Movement). The project entails working with States and other influential actors to improve the security and delivery of impartial health care during armed conflict and other emergencies. Its four priority issues are: (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. The current Special Appeal covers: (i) the ICRC plan of action and activities foreseen for 2015 that are directly related to the HCiD project, and their accompanying budgets; (ii) as examples, the ICRC’s operational activities in 6 selected contexts, which aim to ensure access to quality health-care services in these countries, and these initiatives’ budgets. Activities covered are also included in the ICRC Headquarters and Emergency Appeals 2015. This Special Appeal aims to draw contributions, particularly from funding sources which usually do not or have not financed the ICRC on the basis of its yearly Headquarters Appeal and Emergency Appeals.
