Our Work

2014

  • A key transit and destination country for African and Middle Eastern refugees and migrants, Egypt has recorded a massive increase in arrivals and departures since 2011.
  • Regional instability continues to encourage the flow of refugees and migrants.
  • Médecins Sans Frontières teams provide these refugees with psychological support, and offer specialised medical assistance to those who have suffered sexual violence or torture.
  • In 2014, Médecins Sans Frontières expanded its services by opening a second clinic in Cairo. 

 

Viral hepatitis

  • Médecins Sans Frontières is collaborating with the health ministry to respond to hepatitis C in Egypt.
  • Access to treatment is limited by both cost and the centralised nature of care.
