  1. The role of physicians in conflict and humanitarian crises : case studies from the field missions of physicians for human rights, 1988 to 1993.

    Article - En anglais

    Violations of human rights in wars, civil conflicts, and brutal repression mounted by governments against their own citizens often have profound consequences to individual and public health and may, in turn, produce humanitarian crises.

    The skills of physicians, medical and forensic scientists, and other health workers are uniquely valuable in human rights investigations and documentation, producing evidence of abuse more credible and less vulnerable to challenge than traditional methods of case reporting.

    Only in recent decades, however, have physicians organized specifically to meet this responsibility.
