Humanitarian Medicine's practical experiences show the potential violence of the medicine's power over bodies everywhere. The inequality between assistance and people receiving benefits is comparable to the asymmetrical relationship between doctor and patient. Efforts have to be done in order to comprehend other possibilities of life's organization. The understanding of double subjectivities in the therapeutic relationship is a requirement for success, in any situation--as usual. Furthermore, the adverse effects of assistance remind us the primary principle not to harm. These admissions of failure urge to develop assessment reasoning, including all factors of influence on health (resources, policy...), and an approach which aims people to become self-sufficient.

Claire Jacquot, Paolo Di Patrizio, Francis Guillemin, Alain Gerard. Humanitarian Medicine's practical experiences show the potential violence of the medicine's power over bodies everywhere. The inequality between assistance and people receiving benefits is comparable to the asymmetrical relationship between doctor and patient. Efforts have to be done in order to comprehend other possibilities of life's organization. The understanding of double subjectivities in the therapeutic relationship is a requirement for success, in any situation--as usual. Furthermore, the adverse effects of assistance remind us the primary principle not to harm. These admissions of failure urge to develop assessment reasoning, including all factors of influence on health (resources, policy...), and an approach which aims people to become self-sufficient.. Revue médicale de la Suisse romande, 2011. ⟨hal-02314514⟩
