Since October 2005, Hilary Bower has worked as project coordinator for MSF in the Karbi Anglong region of India's Assam state. MSF is bringing urgently needed assistance to local residents who have been forced to flee from their villages due to violence between members of two local tribes.
The continuing insecurity in many areas and a lack of international attention has resulted in a dearth of meaningful emergency assistance, leaving many desperate segments of society abandoned and all but forgotten. This is an interview with Colin McIlreavy, MSF head of mission in Somalia for the past year.
Frank Smithuis, MD, is the country manager and medical coordinator for MSF in Myanmar, the country formerly known as Burma. He highlights how MSF teams are working in this isolated country to provide urgently needed care to fight HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis.
