What we do
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and armed violence. We take action in response to emergencies and at the same time promote respect for international humanitarian law. We are an independent and neutral organization, and our mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. We work closely with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and with their International Federation in order to ensure a concerted, rational and rapid humanitarian response to the needs of the victims of armed conflict or any other situation of internal violence. We direct and coordinate the international activities conducted in these situations.
The ICRC has made a commitment to providing high-quality and accountable health programmes, crafted to meet professional standards. We have historically focused on people wounded in war and have become highly skilled and knowledgeable in that area, even developing the standards for treating these types of wounds. The emergency room therefore has and will remain a critical part of the ICRC’s support for hospitals.
As a Physician Specialist Emergency Room, you are part of the ICRC hospital team. You ensure that the weapon-wounded, as well as all medical and surgical emergencies, are treated in a timely and accurate manner according to the principles established by the ICRC. You work in an independent or assisted ICRC hospital structures in often limited/low resources setting with strict security measurements. Your role is to participate in the organization and management of the emergency department, with local health partners, as well as to be the clinical referent for all activities in the department.
