During and after a conflict, civilians may be evacuated from the frontlines and relocated to areas deemed safer and more conducive to recovery. This may require the aid of humanitarian organizations or military aid. The following guidelines should be used when making such arrangements:
The Occupying Power must make suitable arrangements for care, hospital accommodation, and distribution of religious supplies. The Occupying Power must not transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies. The Occupying Power must also permit ministers of religion to provide spiritual assistance.
The Occupying Power may requisition civilian hospitals for military use. These facilities should be located as close to military objectives as possible. They should also be staffed by competent personnel, preferably those with the latest in medical technology. The Occupying Power should take the time to explain its requirements to civilian hospital managers. The management of these facilities should maintain a list of all such personnel.
The Occupying Power should display the appropriate logo on its hospital doors. The management of the facility must also take the time to acknowledge and thank civilian hospital workers for their assistance. The Occupying Power should also enlist the help of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to assist in the establishment of safety zones.
The ICRC is an organization with a mission of improving the lives of civilians and in turn improve the quality of life of those who live under its protection. The following guidelines should be followed when granting the following:
The ICRC should be entrusted with the requisite security clearance to carry out its missions. A civilian should not be excluded from military service because of the HIV virus. The ICRC should also be commended for its efforts to prevent the spread of the virus and its efforts to combat it. In addition, the ICRC is entrusted with the mission of enhancing the resilience of the ICRC to withstand attacks. This includes relocating a patient if necessary. The ICRC should also be congratulated for the best practices of the ICRC in the field of civil-military relations.
The ICRC is one of the most influential and reputable organizations in the world. As a result, it is entrusted with the highest responsibilities in the field of humanitarian affairs. The ICRC is also a leading light in the field of disaster prevention, mitigation and recovery. This is illustrated by the fact that it has been a participant in the United Nations High Level Panel on Disaster Risk Reduction since 1999.
