Registration of children. Temperature measurement and a quick test to determine if they are infected with malaria. Every day dozens of children under five are affected by lack of shelters and mosquito nets. Children are weighed to determine the dose to prescribe.
Over 20,000 people displaced by violence gathered at the airport in Bangui. MSF provides medical care for children under 5 and pregnant women. More than 200 consultations are given each day at the airport, mostly trauma cases and malaria. We refer the wounded and medical and surgical emergencies to the Castor Maternity, the Community Hospital or the Pediatric Complex in Bangui supported by the NGO Emergency.
