PEOPLE IN CONFLICT

In many conflict zones, civilians and civilian infrastructure – including medical facilities – came under indiscriminate or targeted attacks. Millions of people had to flee their homes, sometimes multiple times. Our teams provided assistance to those caught in conflict and fleeing. They cared for pregnant women and newborns, treated the wounded and people with medical emergencies, managed chronic illnesses and responded to disease outbreaks, notably through vaccination campaigns. MSF also worked to meet other vital needs, such as for drinking water and essential relief items. From Lebanon to Tanzania, MSF teams mobilised to assist hundreds of thousands of people who had fled violence and conflict to other countries in search of safety.
