Chapter Summary

Article 3 common to the Geneva Conventions 1949 contains only a general basic provision in relation to the wounded and sick. Nothing is said about the details of such care, about the protection of medical personnel, units and transports, about the use of the distinctive emblem, about the general protection of medical functions. The provisions of Part III constitute a considerable and satisfactory development of the very rudimentary protection of the wounded and sick provided under Art. 3 common to the Conventions. This chapter also describes various Articles: Article 7 on protection and care, Article 8 on search, Article 9 on protection of medical and religious personnel, Article 10 on general protection of medical duties, Article 11 on protection on medical units and transports, and Article 12 on distinctive emblems of red cross or red crescent or red lion.
