Ahead of the first-ever Global Ministerial Conference on “Ending TB” in Moscow, the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), the Stop TB Partnership, and tens of thousands of supporters called for countries with the most people affected by tuberculosis (TB) to implement the latest international treatment and testing standards by World TB Day, March 24, 2018.

In 2017, nearly half of MSF's patients in Serbia were under 18; almost all of them were refugees and asylum-seekers who were traveling unaccompanied or became separated from their parents. Minors are supposed to be protected by the system, but many of these young people report violent abuse by European Union border authorities and police.

After a supposed ceasefire broke down almost immediately, the long-besieged and almost completely destroyed neighborhoods of East Aleppo were once again subjected to heavy shelling yesterday and today, increasing the misery of residents to an almost unthinkable level.

A doctor* in a makeshift clinic in the East Ghouta area near Damascus told MSF the following about the latest attacks in the area:

In the past three weeks, we’ve experienced new waves of strikes coming from the sky and the ground. These strikes have been hitting residential areas, particularly schools. There are still functioning medical centers but we are barely coping with this new wave of violence.

The intensity of attacks in besieged areas near Damascus and Homs has increased dramatically once more, leading to significant increases in mass casualty influxes.

Just today, Friday, multiple airstrikes again hit East Ghouta, an area of besieged towns near Damascus. Medics in the area are reporting many casualties, including women and children, but the tally of today’s war-wounded and war-dead is not yet complete.

On March 9, 2016, European leaders announced that the so-called "Balkan route" was closed after Croatia, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) and Slovenia completely shut their borders to people trying to pass through to seek asylum in northern Europe. For thousands of people fleeing violence and persecution in their home countries, this route represented one of very few ways to reach safety and protection in Europe.

It’s been more than two years since conflict erupted in eastern Ukraine, yet thousands of forgotten victims remain left behind in areas close to a frontline that hasn't moved in months. More than 9,300 people have been killed and some 21,500 injured since mid-April 2014. Though the conflict has faded from the international spotlight, frequent violations of last year’s ceasefire continue to cause deaths on a regular basis.
