December 31, 2008

2008 was a year of achievement as well as frustration for MSF. While advances in malnutrition treatment allowed more children to be helped, teams trying to reach victims of some of the most acute conflicts in the world faced considerable obstacles.

Throughout the year, MSF aid workers carried out 8.8 million consultations and 47,500 surgical interventions in over 65 countries. They provided treatment for more than one million people with malaria, and nutritional care for more than 200,000 malnourished children.
