Refugees, migration and displacement

Over 70 million people are currently fleeing conflict or persecution around the world. Due to their race, religion or nationality, these people’s homes are no longer safe places to live and their governments’ no longer provide them with protection. 

MSF works around the world to provide lifesaving assistance to refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs), from providing psychological care to nutritional support. 

We set up hospitals in refugee camps, we help women give birth safely, we vaccinate children to prevent epidemics and we provide access to safe drinking water. We also have specialised projects to try to reach those who are on the move, for example in Europe or South America, and throughout Africa.
