MSF in East Africa

MSF has some of its largest medical projects across East Africa including in South Sudan, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Somalia and Burundi. In these countries, MSF runs hospitals, health centres and mobile clinics, and launches emergency projects as spikes in healthcare needs arise.   
MSF also has a regional office in Kenya, which supports our medical programmes in the country and those surrounding it, recruits staff to help run our operations around the world and raises awareness of humanitarian crises that we are responding to. MSF also has a specialist innovation unit, called the Displacement Unit, which supports our projects around the world, and a regional supply centre in Kenya

Ethiopia: Tigray Crisis

People have been left without healthcare and tens of thousands have been displaced across Ethiopia and Sudan, following fighting that broke out in the Tigray region of northern Ethiopia, in November 2020.

MSF teams are working on both sides of the border, providing assistance to people in refugees camps in Sudan, and to the displaced and host communities within Tigray in Ethiopia.
