With catastrophic health indicators in areas along the frontline and the prolonged isolation of communities, MSF has reoriented its approach from structural assistance to health zones to a more direct support of populations along both sides of the frontline. MSF mobile teams are going out into the bush to ensure assistance to populations cut off from medical care.
