This is very informative course, especially for those who are considering pursue their career in the humanitarian field or to work for the ICRC, and other organizations that operates in environments of conflict and violence.

It's a complete couse for healthcare providers who want to know how to face violence in different contexts and how to attempt to solve it.

Very clear, plenty of example and raise awareness about a critcal topic.
