Syria: Four MSF hospitals and more than 100,000 consultations
The conflict in Syria is extremely intense, with moving front-lines, enclaves of people cut off from assistance, an estimated 6.8 million people in urgent need of humanitarian assistance and a collpased health system.
Despite the very real challenges of operating in the country, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors WIthout Borders (MSF) now has four hospitals, increasing mobile clinic activities around some of these hospitals, and a strategy of actively seeking to open new projects where it is safe to do so.

MSF's work in neighbouring countries
Some 1.4 million Syrians have fled to neighbouring countries that are overwhelmed and where the humanitarian response has so far been unable to meet their needs. MSF is carrying out medical consultations and distributing relief items to refugees in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey.
These countries are doing a huge amount to assist refugees, but the sheer numbers - more than 1.3 million and rising fast - are overwhelming the humanitarian response capacity.
