Since April, an outbreak of measles has been sweeping through the town of Guri El and nearby areas in the Galgaduud region of South and Central Somalia. So far, MSF has treated 403 patients for measles-related complications in the area.
New York, 11 April 2007 – Since cholera was confirmed in Mogadishu on March19, 2007, the international humanitarian medical aid organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has treated more than 800 patients. However the recent worsening violence is making it increasingly difficult for patients to access MSF's cholera treatment center (CTC), which opened two weeks ago. The fighting is also preventing MSF national staff from reaching other areas of the city.
