Access to health in fragile contexts

Presentations of the Swiss Red Cross and Cordaid

Access to health in fragile contextsMMS It is a difficult task to implement health programmes in environments where the health systems are already weak and threatened by a wide range of political and social conflicts. Working in such fragile contexts demands a sensitive approach for not worsening the situation. But international health cooperation can also play an important role in conflict transformation. At a side event to the World Health Assembly, which was co-organised by the Network Medicus Mundi Switzerland, the dutch organisation Cordaid and the Swiss Red Cross presented their experiences.
