Algeria

Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) started working in Algeria again in 2015, after an absence of 13 years, beofre handing over its projects in 2016.

The short term proejct increased the availability of HIV care for vulnerable groups of people, such as migrants, intravenous drug users and sex workers.

MSF worked closely with two Algerian organisations in a number of centres run by the Ministry of Health and other partners, including one in Annaba.

The aim of the project was to raise awareness of HIV prevention strategies; offer testing services in the community; create strong links with HIV reference centres in order to provide them with technical support to standardise treatment, monitoring and protocols; and to donate laboratory equipment.
