Abstract

Human rights violations in armed conflict against community members, displaced persons, and health workers include combatants' uses of threats and coercion, attacks on health facilities, and abuses against civilians. Traditional clinical and public health ethical obligations are not sufficient to guide practice in those spaces. This article describes some of the complex realities of health practice in conflict zones that challenge adherence to clinicians' ethical obligations and create severe risks to the health, well-being, and dignity of the people they serve. It also proposes some solutions to these challenges.
