Having provided medical and humanitarian assistance to thousands of migrants stranded close to the Libyan border or rescued from the Mediterranean Sea since 2012, we handed over our projects in Tunisia to other organisations in October 2017.

MSF has been working with fishermen in Zarzis, Tunisia to offer training in search and rescue. Fishermen are often on the first line of the response when boats get into trouble near their fishing grounds and have been given material as well as training to assist them in their efforts. MSF has also provided training to the Tunisian and Libyan Red Crescents in dead body management.
