Farida fled Afghanistan with her husband and kids. They arrived in Samos, Greece in early March and have lived in this tent outside Vathy camp ever since.

Some 12,000 men, women and children are still trapped in overcrowded, dirty and unsafe conditions, which deteriorate their health and well-being.

On the third anniversary of the signing of the EU-Turkey deal, we are calling on European leaders to take action to end the harmful policy of containment on the Greek island ‘hotspots’. Head to the link in the bio to learn more. (bit.ly/2ufjeXV)

Through various activities like door to door information dissemination, puppet shows, group discussions and street plays, MSF health educators work tirelessly to raise awareness on domestic and sexual violence in the community and wider society, so the victims seek timely treatment. MSF first opened the Umeed Ki Kiran clinic in November 2015 to respond to the medical needs of people affected by domestic and sexual violence. The clinic, located in the Jahangirpuri area of North Delhi, remains open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week providing all services in a friendly and confidential environment, through a team of trained and qualified doctors, nurses and counsellors. The services include treatment of injuries, prevention of HIV/AIDS, unwanted pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases and psychosocial support.

"There is a great contradiction at the heart of this response. On the one hand we have innovations and tools that previously we only dreamed of. And yet, despite this, the signs are that Ebola is not under control.” Seven months into the largest ever Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the response is failing to bring the epidemic under control in a climate of deepening community mistrust. MSF International President Joanne Liu gave an update in a press conference on the current Ebola outbreak in DRC, where people are facing the biggest Ebola outbreak in the country’s history.

Seven months into the second largest Ebola outbreak ever recorded, the response in the Democratic Republic of Congo is failing to bring the epidemic under control. 
Even with new medical tools such as vaccines and treatments, people with Ebola are dying in their communities and do not trust the Ebola response enough to come forward. Patients and communities must be treated as partners in the response and choices must be given back to them.
