Violence against health workers (including doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers, public health specialists, managers and administrative staff) occurs in virtually all healthcare systems. The contexts in which violence occurs differ widely—ranging from emergency rooms and psychiatric wards in otherwise stable settings to field hospitals in conflict settings—but the common link is the need to deliver health services. Further, the barriers to the delivery of health services are embedded in the specific social, cultural and economic contexts, which are influenced by external, often global-level, factors.1 Through a systems lens, violence against health workers is not solely a health systems issue; rather, it relates to wider societal pressures.
