This month's webclip takes us on a short tour of MSF activities

  • In Democratic Republic of Congo, MSF teams are seeing a surge in malaria cases
  • A malnutrition crisis is looming for the Sahel region of northwest Africa.  In Chad, MSF teams are taking preventative steps by setting up local health centres
  • Meanwhile in Paraguay, MSF teams are screening communities in remote areas for Chagas, a little-known parasitic disease that can lead to heart failure
  • In Uzbekistan, a patient receiving treatment for multi-drug resistance tuberculosis describes living with the disease
  • And in Haiti, MSF has taken on the massive administrative and logistical challenge of issuing medical certificates to people who received treatment for cholera during the outbreak
