Methodology

The events have been systematically compiled from three categories of sources: (a) verified security events submitted to Insecurity Insight by 30 Aid in Danger partner agencies; (b) open source publicly reported events identified by Insecurity Insight and published in the Attacks on Health Care Monthly News Brief; and (c) events from the WHO SSA.

Attacks on health care: Any act of verbal or physical violence, obstruction, or threat of violence that interferes with the availability of, access to, and delivery of curative and/or preventive health services in the DRC. Note: For this project only, our definition of an 'attack' goes beyond the definition used by the Safeguarding Health in Conflict Coalition (SHCC) and includes events perpetrated by patients or relatives of patients, private individuals and criminals, as well as those perpetrated by state and non state actors as covered by the SHCC.
