[Breaking the silence in Colombia to resist violence 1/2].

[Article in French]

Author information

  • 1Médecins sans frontières.


The war in Columbia is the source of permanent and widespread violence, of which the civilian population, notably rural, is the main victim. What are the effects of the conflict's violence on individuals and on society? Medical-psychological teams from Médecins Sans Frontières France worked in Tolima, a region particularly affected by the conflict, between 2001 and 2008, and were able to study the complexity of the forms of violence and their consequences. This article is the first of two presenting an analysis backed up by personal accounts.
