PALACIOS GARCIA, Ana Liliana. In this "war-time": Nurses facing International conflicts. Index Enferm [online]. 2006, vol.15, n.54, pp.53-55. ISSN 1699-5988.

The war or conflicts have been present since the beginning of the humanity. The search of better chances, gaining of lands or tribal revenges are some causes of it and they are still present in the world. Nowadays the landscape for some countries is conflict. Colombia is one of them and it has taken around 50 years of its existence. One or other way, it affects the health in different way with either direct and no-direct consequences. Those who are health professionals have been exposed to work in this kind of context, a little bit different to the standard one. Some months ago, when I arrived home, some doubts and questions arose about this topic: How many of us (health professionals) know about the world's situation or even our countries' themselves? How it affects the nursing performance? Which one can be our role? Maybe, it is a research issue  but here it is treated like a topic revision, using like reference my country's reality.
