Week 1 wrap up

Week 1 wrap up
Case 1 and Medical Peace Work
We hope that the story of the crisis at the district hospital has helped you understand the principles of medical peace work.

You should now be able to:

  1. Identify challenges faced by health workers during violent conflict, including the need to maintain impartiality and the tension between medical ethics and security priorities.
  2. Advocate for International Humanitarian Law.
  3. Apply the seven steps of the Do No Harm framework to a conflict situation.

Next week we move to a story of a different manifestation of violence, as we try to understand how to ‘do no harm’ in the event of a nuclear explosion.
