In 2015, the World Health Organization established the Attacks on Health Care (AHC) initiative. This initiative is a priority of WHO’s Health Emergencies Programme. The vision of the initiative is that essential lifesaving health services must be provided to emergency-affected populations unhindered by any form of violence or obstruction. The Surveillance System for Attacks on Health Care (SSA) is one of the outputs of this initiative. The purpose of the WHO Surveillance System for Attacks on Health Care (SSA) is to systematically collect and make available data on attacks on health care, and their immediate impact on health care in countries facing emergencies.
