MSF in Serbia & Montenegro, 2005
All articles on Serbia & Montenegro »
Serbia and Montenegro are still recovering from years of war. Area conflicts have caused high numbers of displaced people — more than 220,000 internally displaced people and 140,000 refugees — to gather there where they live under difficult conditions.
MSF provides mental health care for displaced people living in "collective centers" located in the towns of Vranje and Bujanovac in the southern Pcinja district of Serbia along the border with Kosovo. The staff is also advocating for changes in the republic's administrative, medical and social infrastructures that should enable the country's displaced people to enjoy equal status with other citizens. As more sustainable solutions start to be implemented for these groups, MSF is planning to hand over its remaining activities in the region by the end of 2005.
MSF has worked in parts of former Yugoslavia since 1991.
