MSF Month in Focus | June 2015

Take a look at our work around the world and see what we really do. This month we take a look at the ceaseless fighting in Yemen,  the worsening humanitarian crisis in South Sudan, Iraq, Central African Republic, preventing antibiotic resistance and the indiscriminate killing in Nigeria.

Yemen - Ceaseless fighting

Damage caused by Coalition attacks on Yemen’s airports is obstructing delivery of humanitarian assistance. Aid is, however, desperately needed by the civilians caught up in the conflict.

South Sudan - The humanitarian crisis worsens

The civil war opposing the pro-President Salva Kiir forces and those loyal to his former vice-president Riek Machar broke out in December 2013 in South Sudan. After a period of apparent calm, hostilities started up again. Civilians are living a nightmare.

Iraq - "We'll never go home"

In June 2014 Islamic State captured Mosul in Iraq. The fighting was fiercer than ever, pushing even more people to flee their homes. The situation has since worsened, leaving over 8 million people in need of aid.

Central African Republic - Faces of fear

500 Central African Muslims, fearing for their lives, have taken refuge in a church in Carnot. Some have been confined here for over a year.

Resistance to antibiotics - Time to engage

More than 50 years after the introduction of antibiotics on a large-scale, could it become possible to die of a simple pulmonary infection?

Antibiotic resistance affects all countries in the world, but without a reliable, comprehensive system to collect data, it’s impossible to get a real global overview of the situation.

Nigeria - Indiscriminate killing

Dr Abubakr Bashir Bakri has just spent three years in Nigeria with MSF as medical coordinator and then head of mission. He testifies to the worsening crisis in the northeast, and the indifference it receives.
