International Activity Report 2019

In 2019, the  Ebola outbreak in northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) continued to rage, alongside the worst-ever measles epidemic, while two cyclones and severe flooding devastated parts of Mozambique, Sudan, and South Sudan. Conflict caused extreme suffering across the Sahel and in Yemen, and thousands of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers remained trapped in Libya, Greece and Mexico, exposed to violence and disease. 

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams responded to all these crises, and other emergencies around the world, during the year, with a workforce of approximately 65,000 people. Learn about our work in 2019 in our International Activity Report

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.
