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.

<a href='#' class = 'hashtags'>#Sexualviolence</a> affects millions of people, brutally shattering the lives of women, men and children. 
Stigma, fear of the aggressor and of others finding out are some of the reasons victims may hesitate to seek care and often do not pursue follow-up care. And yet getting immediate medical care after sexual assault is critical in order to limit the potential consequences.

Survivors of sexual and gender-based violence require immediate medical care in order to limit some of the serious consequences to their physical and mental health.

In November 2015, MSF opened Umeed Ki Kiran, a community-based 24x7 clinic in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri area where our team provides quality medical treatment and psychosocial support to survivors of sexual violence, rape and domestic violence.
