First aid for the wounded. Some were injured in the city, others on the IDP site during fights or distributions. Surgical procedures are performed for injuries, including machete wounds. The most serious patients are stabilised to be referred to the Community Hospital and Castor Health Centre, where MSF has surgical units.
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.
