Since February 1, nearly 1,000 people, most of them Muslim, have been trapped, surrounded, and threatened by armed militias known as anti-balakas in Carnot, southwestern Central African Republic (CAR). Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has been working in Carnot since 2010 and has been a direct witness to the violence and abuses against the city’s displaced Muslim populations, whom MSF is assisting.

Communal violence continues to rage in Bangui, Central African Republic (CAR), and is spreading to the rest of the country. All but nonexistent in the northwest of the country, international forces are unable to halt the violence. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams are providing care in 14 areas of the conflict-wracked nation.

Years of conflict has had serious consequences on the availability and accessibility of health care in some of Afghanistan's provinces, with women and children often the most vulnerable. The specialized maternity hospital opened by Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Khost provides a safe and healthy environment for women to deliver their babies free of charge, and to particularly assist in complicated deliveries in order to help reduce the high maternal mortality rate in the area.

The violence that began in South Sudan in mid-December has continued, unabated, while the humanitarian situation has further deteriorated. Data collected by doctors indicates that the mortality rate, particularly for children under five, now exceeds the emergency threshold. More than 3,000 MSF staff, mostly South Sudanese, are working in nine of the country's 10 states.

Just under two weeks ago, 240 South Sudanese Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) staff left Leer Hospital, fleeing into the bush with several dozen of the most severely injured patients and thousands of local people. The security situation is worsening every day, living conditions are life-threatening, and MSF has now lost contact with two-thirds of its staff.

Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on November 8, 2013, killing more than 5,000 people and displacing more than four million, wiping out homes, hospitals, and infrastructure. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has been providing medical and mental health care, focusing on the most remote parts of the country, for the last three months in inflatable and tented hospitals and through mobile clinics, reaching isolated communities by air, land, and sea.

Since early December 2013, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has provided medical care to more than 1,000 patients wounded by violence in and around Bangui airport, where approximately 100,000 displaced people have taken refuge from a wave of fighting that has spread across the country. Carrying out medical activities at the camp is a big challenge due to heavy fighting that regularly takes place close to where MSF is working.
