“This is not the first time that people from Rann have had to flee to<a href='#' class = 'hashtags'>#Cameroon</a>.” Over 35,000 people fled from Rann to Cameroon in late January and are still in acute need.

The refugees are staying in a large, informal camp in Goura, Cameroon. Most are sleeping in the open, even though it is sandstorm season and the temperature drops sharply at night.

MSF has scaled up its daily water delivery with other providers to 240,000 litres, but each person still gets only 7 litres per day. 
Our teams have also set up a clinic in the refugee camp and conducted more than 400 consultations. 35% of these were for infectious respiratory diseases, followed by diarrhoea and conjunctivitis.

Subashini is from Jharkhand, where she works with MSF as a Community Health Educator to improve local communities’ understanding of health and nutrition. But it was her own experience as a young mother with a malnourished child that inspired her to help others avoid the same story.

“I lost my hearing when I was 24 because of the brutal side effect of an injected DR-TB drug,” said Nandita Venkatesan, who completed her treatment in 2015. “I was devastated by this loss, which took a heavy financial, emotional and mental toll on me. How many more people will have to die or go deaf, waiting to access safer and more effective drugs that can save their lives without such devastating side effects?"
We are supporting a patent challenge filed in India by two tuberculosis survivors to prevent pharmaceutical corporation Johnson & Johnson (J&J) from extending its monopoly on the TB drug Bedaquiline.

Ebola Treatment Centres operated by MSF in the Democratic Republic of Congo  are participating in the randomized controlled trial (RCT) of four potential Ebola-treatments with the objective to identify the most effective of the four products to treat Ebola patients. 
The objective of the randomised clinical trial is to identify, among the four molecules under study, which one is the most efficient to ensure, in the future, the best treatment possible for Ebola patients.

A year after violence forced them to flee, 10,000 internally displaced people are living in desperate conditions in Nizi, Democratic Republic of Congo.
