On 5 December, the General Assembly of the United Nations accepted the resolution on the protection of health facilities and personnel, which “strongly condemns all attacks on medical and health personnel, their means of transport and equipment, as well as hospitals and other medical facilities, and deplores the long-term consequences of such attacks for the population and health-care systems of the countries concerned”. ICN was an active participant in the development of this resolution as part of the Health Care in Danger project which aims to make access to health care in situations of armed violence more secure.
