Central African Republic: Sylvain Groulx Head of Mission Live from Bangui

Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic, has been in the grip of violence for weeks but most of the city’s hospitals are no longer functioning. Above, Sylvain Groux, Head of Mission, speaks about the situation on the ground.

 In addition to the emergency response, MSF is currently managing seven regular projects (in Batangafo, Boguila, Carnot, Kabo, Ndéle, Paoua and Zémio) and four emergency projects (in Bangui, Bossangoa, Bouca and Bria). MSF hopes to start activities in the hospitals of Bangassou and Ouango. In total, it provides free medical care through its work in seven hospitals, two medical centres and 40 health posts; and has more than 100 expatriate personnel and about 1,100 local staff in its teams.
