What where you doing in 1999?

20 years ago, MSF launched the Access Campaign out of medical necessity and frustration.

Medicines that could stop disease and save lives were too expensive, or simply didn’t exist because no one was interested in developing them.

Saif is one of the youngest patients at MSF's post operative care in Mosul, Iraq. He has been there for a month. His family was displaced by the recent conflict and live in a camp not far from Mosul. "Life in the camp was not easy but I was still happy because I got to go to school. One day, another boy at school threw a big rock at me and it broke my leg," he explains. Saif went from one hospital to the next before ending up at MSF facility in East Mosul. There, MSF teams found out he also had antibiotic resistance.

Last Thursday one of our colleagues Gaulbert Mokafe, assistant nurse at the Batangafo hospital in #CentralAfricanRepublic, was murdered at the hands of an armed group while travelling to visit his family. Gaulbert was 41 and had worked at the Batangafo hospital, where MSF operates in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, since 2012. "If those responsible for the death of Gaulbert or their relatives had needed medical attention, Gaulbert would have taken care of them. His death is a cowardly crime, which has left the MSF family in Batangafo and in CAR shocked and outraged." - Omar Abenza, MSF head of mission.
