Our Work 

2014

  • In June, Médecins Sans Frontières handed over its project in the south of Madagascar to the Ministry of Health.
  • Following the political crisis of 2009, people in Madagascar faced a deteriorating economic and health situation and Médecins Sans Frontières conducted several needs assessments before opening a project in Bekily, Androy region, in 2011.
  • The project’s activities focused on medical care for women experiencing complications and emergencies in pregnancy, malnourished children, and patients with tuberculosis (TB), schistosomiasis (a curable parasitic disease) and malaria.
