A survey of TB diagnostic and treatment practices in eight countries, October 2014.

MSF briefing paper, December 2014

What began in 2011 in Syria as protests inspired by the Arab Spring has become an entrenched and bloody conflict that shows no sign of resolution. Today, with an estimated 200,000 people killed and 7.6 million people displaced within the country and 3.2 million refugees registered outside, Syria is seen as the world’s most grave humanitarian disaster. In the face of this crisis, the previously functioning health system has collapsed and scores of thousands of medical staff have fled.

Iraq experienced a dramatic surge in violence in 2014 that triggered successive large-scale waves of displacement. More than 2.6 million people are said to have fled war-torn the central and northern areas of Iraq, particularly Al-Anbar, Ninawa, Salah Al-Din, Kirkuk and Diyala governorates.

ATHENS, GREECE/NEW YORK, MAY 26, 2016—As Greek authorities evict thousands of refugees from a camp in Idomeni, the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) denounces the involuntary nature of the eviction, the lack of information provided to refugees and the restrictions on humanitarian assistance during this process.

MSF calls on the Greek authorities to ensure that adequate and continuous assistance is guaranteed during the movement of people and in their new locations.

Siham, 30 years old, is from Halab, Syria. She was in the refugee camp of Idomeni, Greece on Wednesday morning when Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) staff collected this testimony by phone.

The police came early in the morning and took a lot of people away. Very few people are left in the camp now. My children are scared and I don’t know what to do. The people who have gone to the new official camps don’t like it there. I don’t know if I should go or cross the border illegally. But my husband, who is in Holland, doesn’t want us to go illegally.

Almost one month after the signing of the EU-Turkey deal, the situation across Greece remains chaotic and inhumane. In improvised camps and detention centers across the country, around 50,000 people are stranded in appalling conditions. In what is becoming unbearable heat, many are unable to access the asylum system and are rapidly losing hope that they will be able to join their relatives or find places to live in peace.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) doctor Conor Kenny writes from Idomeni, Greece, where more than 1,000 refugees are trapped at the border.

Before I could see him, I could hear his screams coming towards us through the fabric of the field clinic tent. Carried in a standard issue dark thermal blanket by four young men, he was in tears, screaming and writhing in agony. We placed him immediately on our assessment bench. It was clear that this was an emergency.
