MSF Month in Focus: April 2019

From the remote mountains of far north Myanmar to a busy Baghdad emergency department, take a look at our work around the world this month.

Myanmar: Reaching isolated mountain villages

In the mountainous far north of Myanmar, a mobile medical team is taking on tough terrain and rough weather to reach isolated communities.

On journeys that can take more than eight hours, the team visit 15 villages in the Naga region that are only accessible by motorbike - ensuring that people who were previously cut off now have access to regular healthcare.

Cyclone Idai: The women's football team taking on cholera

In Mozambique, a women's football in the disaster-hit city of Beira is helping a community fight recent cholera outbreaks in the aftermath of Cyclone Idai.

The athletes donated their training field and helped humanitarian staff set up a specialised cholera treatment centre, meaning over 100 patients at a time can now be treated on the team's football field.

Iraq: Inside the emergency department of a busy Baghdad hospital

At Imam Ali Hospital - one of the busiest hospitals in the Iraqi city of Baghdad - a dedicated emergency department team is treating an average of 20,000 patients every month.

To help staff provide the best care possible, MSF doctor Sian Geraty and her team took on the rehabilitation of the busy unit and implemented a life-saving new triage process.
