The founders of the Red Cross/ Red Crescent Movement proceeded from their involvement in specific experience to develop a series of Fundamental Principles. In Health & Humanitarian Concerns: Principles & Ethics , Dr. Henryk Leszek Zielinski proceeds from experience to Fundamental Principles & back again, providing health professionals with clear guidance for confronting specific problems including natural disasters, forced feeding, torture, biomedical research & HIV & AIDS discrimination while simultaneously presenting these medical & social dilemmas in the context of the broader humanitarian principles which underlie the Red Cross & Red Crescent Movement. Upon reading Dr. Zielinski's book, health professionals will either change their approach to complex humanitarian solutions by following Dr. Zielinski's systematic approach, or they will maintain the same course of action but with a deeper understanding & a firmer commitment to the spirit & the letter of the Movement. In either case, Dr. Zielinski's book is an invaluable guide for all who seek to make a personal contribution to the relief of suffering in the modern world.
