Practice Relating to Rule 110. Treatment and Care of the Wounded, Sick and Shipwrecked
Senegal’s Disciplinary Regulations (1990) provides: “When circumstances so permit, the wounded, sick and shipwrecked shall be … cared for.”
Senegal’s Law Authorizing Ratification of the 2008 Convention on Cluster Munitions (2010) states:
In order to achieve [the] objectives [of the 2008 Convention on Cluster Munitions], each State Party has an obligation to adequately provide assistance, including medical care, rehabilitation, psychological support and social and economic inclusion … to cluster munitions victims in areas under its direction and control.
Senegal’s IHL Manual (1999) states that one of the fundamental guarantees common to IHL and the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights is that no distinction other than that based on medical grounds shall be made in the treatment of the wounded and sick.
