MSF's publications are an expression of our belief in the principle of témoignage, or bearing witness, and the belief that we are accountable to those we work for and with. Sharing news about our activities and reflecting on them, offering critiques when necessary, are therefore crucial aspects of our work.

Khalil is one of more than 430 people from over 40 countries treated by the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) project Victims of Torture in Athens since it opened in 2014.

As U.S. President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi meet at the White House today, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) warned that U.S. pressure on India to change its drug regulatory and patent system could result in millions of people in the U.S. and around the world losing their lifeline of affordable medicines. As an international medical humanitarian organization that relies on affordable generic medicines produced in India to run its medical programs in more than 60 countries, MSF urged Modi to stand strong and protect India’s role as the “pharmacy of the developing world.”

The international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) welcomed the addition of snakebite to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) list. Despite the fact that snakebite is estimated to kill over 100,000 people every year—more than any other disease on the list— there are hardly any resources to prevent and treat it and very few lifesaving anti-venoms available.

As they pass through Libya in hopes of traveling on to safety in other countries, many refugees and migrants are robbed, abused, jailed, tortured, or even killed.

Here, MSF head of mission in Libya Jean-Guy Vataux describes how MSF is providing care for people in transit.

Niger hepatitis E
June 21, 2017

Two months after the declaration of a hepatitis E outbreak in Niger’s Diffa region, the humanitarian response is still lacking due to insufficient resources and coordination between actors. The outbreak is taking a heavy toll on some of the area’s most vulnerable people, especially pregnant women and refugees and internally displaced people who fled conflict between Boko Haram and armies in the region.

Despite a peace agreement signed yesterday between the government of the Central African Republic (CAR) and different political and military groups active in the country, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams are witnessing renewed fighting today in the town of Bria, in the east of the country, amid ongoing tensions elsewhere. Violence flared as international donors were meeting in the capital today to discuss funding urgently needed humanitarian efforts.

KAMPALA, UGANDA/NEW YORK, JUNE 20, 2017—Nearly one million South Sudanese refugees have fled to Uganda to escape the violence in their country, yet the international aid response is failing to meet their basic needs for food and water, raising the risk of a medical emergency, the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said today, ahead of an international summit to raise funds for Uganda's refugee response.
