Review of International Humanitarian Law and the Do No Harm framework
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.
