Medicine in conflict


A recent supplement to The Lancet, entitled Medicine in Conflict, examines some of the effects of conflict on individual health and human rights. It makes no attempt to be comprehensive, but presents an array of personal experiences of those working in conflict zones.

Topics range from mental health in Afghanistan and East Timor, food shortages in North Korea, and reproductive health in emergencies, to gender-based violence in refugee settings, the link between war and infectious diseases, and the reality of bioterriorism.

The supplement is available free online, at http://www.thelancet.com/journal/supplement/vol360/isss1/ Medicine in Conflict. The Lancet, Vol 360, Issue 1, supplement (2002)
