Your Safety

You should make enquiries about health, safety and risk factors with your country’s foreign affairs office (or equivalent). There are private companies who also provide security advice. Some links are provided below: 

  • Peace Corps: - provide good information for the adventurous USA youth.

  • Pinkertons: - A private security company offers reports on international security threats and events related to terrorism, crime and civil unrest helping to protect people around the world. (USA)

  • International Humanitarian Law. A must! Nurses intending to work in regions where there is armed conflict should have a working knowledge of International Humanitarian Law (IHL). The Fact Sheet: The Development of International Humanitarian Law is a good introduction. American Red Cross.

  • IHL’s principal legal framework are the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and their Additional Protocols of 1977. The Geneva Convention documents set out the international humanitarian rules that aim to create order within chaos, protect neutral parties, save lives and alleviate hardship of combatants and civilians during and following armed conflict.
