Healthcare provision


An MSF staff member talks to a patient at the African Trypanosomiasis project in Tambura, South Sudan

Not all disasters strike without warning. Some are slow. They unfold over decades as a disease devastates a community, instability undermines an area’s health system or certain groups are actively excluded from care.

In these situations, Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) works to give people access to much-needed health care.

This can mean setting up an area’s only hospital or clinic, or running ongoing treatment programmes for diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and tropical diseases such as kala azar or sleeping sickness.
