Summary of the crisis

Both International Humanitarian Law and the Do No Harm framework are designed to safeguard population health during armed conflict.

The Do No Harm framework is a tool for positive action that helps health and humanitarian workers understand the “dividers” and “connectors” in a population. It also shows how assistance programs can shape a conflict in a negative way. The framework helps identify options for action as the circumstances of the conflict change.

Primum non nocere! (First, do no harm).
