In order to prevent the diseases that killed many refugees in Yida camp, South Sudan, in 2012, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has launched a water and sanitation program and begun a vaccination campaign for children. The campaign was pushed back to start now, during the logistically difficult rainy season, because MSF had to engage in lengthy negotiations to get the vaccine at an affordable price.
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is proving two local health centers in Chiradzulu district, Malawi, with machines that test the blood of HIV patients. The machines will allow health workers to see how effective treatment has been and to make decisions based on those results. Up to now only large regional facilities could provide results like this.
