Practice Relating to Rule 110. Treatment and Care of the Wounded, Sick and Shipwrecked
Section B. Distinction between the wounded and the sick
Côte d’Ivoire’s Teaching Manual (2007) provides in Book I (Basic instruction):
Persons who do not directly participate in hostilities and those rendered hors de combat
because they are sick, wounded, shipwrecked, captured or for other reasons, must be respected and protected against the consequences of the war. All victims must be assisted without discrimination.
In Book III, Volume 1 (Instruction of first-year trainee officers), the Teaching Manual provides:
Prisoners of war can be sick, traumatized or wounded. In such cases, they must be evacuated and cared for by the friendly or enemy medical service at the front. Medical urgency must be the only factor which determines the priority of care. There must be no discrimination in favour of friendly troops.
