MSF Concerned About the Risk of Epidemics

New York, March 2, 2000 — Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is conducting an emergency relief intervention in the Gaza, Inhambane, and Maputo provinces of flood-stricken Mozambique. Contaminated water and the lack of shelter and medicines are increasing the risk of cholera and malaria epidemics. More than 1,000,000 people are affected and an estimated 300,000 have been left homeless in the worst flooding to hit Mozambique in over thirty years.
