Following numerous confrontations between armed groups in the Hauts Plateaux of Uvira, and to help the many victims displaced by the fighting, MSF began providing emergency relief in February 2010. Through this project, MSF supported six health centres and made referrals to the hospitals in Uvira and Bukavu. MSF teams also set up two mobile clinics that can be deployed rapidly to reach people displaced by fighting. The MSF teams provide survivors of sexual violence with medical and psychological care.
