MSF Month in Focus: June 2018

Take a look at our work around the world this June.

This month, we take a tour of a range of vital treatments MSF is providing to people in vulnerable situations.

Learn about the ground-breaking Ebola vaccine programme that we've undertaken in Democratic Republic of Congo, and see the brand new outpatient unit we've opened in the middle of Kutupalong-Balukhali - the largest refugee camp in the world.

We'll also be looking back on an incredible surgical project that recently came to a close, after four years of treating war-wounded Syrians in Jordan, as well as uncovering MSF's important work with survivors of torture.

Ebola: Five things to know about the vaccine 

Since May 2018, MSF has been responding to an Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

MSF medical director Micaela Serafini answers questions the life-saving vaccination programme that took place in the town of Bikoro, aiming to prevent the spread of the virus.

Syria: Remembering Ramtha

For more than four years, MSF has been running an emergency surgical project in Ramtha, northern Jordan, treating Syrians injured in the prolonged conflict that continues north of the border.

Following a drop in arrivals, MSF has made the difficult decision to close the project. Here, we speak to Daham, one of the many trauma patients we have treated over the years.

Treating survivors of torture

MSF is treating survivors of torture in specialist projects around the world.

Teams of doctors, psychologists and physiotherapists are providing to support patients - who have often escaped conflict zones - to overcome the physical and psychological trauma of torture, and to regain their independence.
