Jenalyn de Leon is seen in her home in Smokey Mountain Philippines, a landfill that has attracted informal settlers.

Since October 2016, MSF has worked in the slums of Tondo, in Manila, the capital of the Philippines.

Access to affordable health care is a huge challenge for people in these slums, especially women seeking non-judgmental reproductive health and family planning services.

So far, our work there includes:

- Cervical cancer prevention
- Family planning consultations
- An HPV vaccination campaign, targeting 25,000 girls
