Rohingya Crisis

Since August 2017, more than 706,000 Rohingya people have fled Mynamar following a violent crackdown by authorities on their already persecuted minority. They have joined a smaller group of Rohingya refugees who had escaped to neighbouring Bangladesh after previous episodes of targeted violence.

Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya people now shelter in vast refugee camps in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.

Since the crisis began, MSF has carried out more than 1.3 million patient consultations with Rohingya refugees - treating people for the physical and psychological trauma inflicted during the violence, as well as the long-term health implications of life inside the camps. This has included vaccinating against large outbreaks of measles and diphtheria, as well as mental health support and maternity care.
