The medical mission in Catatumbo faces conflicts, offences, and tensions during its work, which, in turn, accumulate and create critical moral problems. These become established in collective and individual feeling as entropies, affecting the exercise of the profession, identity, the work, the vocation and the surroundings. In this context, the need to explore and examine the meaning of the work of the medical mission, the feelings that emerge in the public life of the health personnel, the collective memory, and development of the necessary skills to contribute to the political participation and deliberation of the health personnel in these regions.
The purpose of this study is to explore this topic focusing on ethical and bioethical reconciliation, founded within the human development, in order to reduce vulnerabilities and improve resilience skills in environments rife with tension and confrontation. This implies a critical analysis of this dimension of the conflict, as well as the generating effects within the armed actor – health agent relationship. To do so, we have to go further and look for support in other types of ethics for its development, for example the ethics of feelings (circumscribed to the public sphere and social bioethics).
