MSF's publications are an expression of our belief in the principle of témoignage, or bearing witness, and the belief that we are accountable to those we work for and with. Sharing news about our activities and reflecting on them, offering critiques when necessary, are therefore crucial aspects of our work.

Since 2016, the west Aleppo countryside in northern Syria has been one of the main destinations for internally displaced people (IDPs) evacuated from besieged areas like eastern Aleppo City, Homs, South Hama and, recently, eastern Ghouta. Tens of thousands of IDPs in west Aleppo now live in a mix of formal and makeshift camps, without access to basic services like clean water, food, and sanitation.

April 13, 2018

Roughly 60,000 people have been displaced from eastern Ghouta, near Damascus, to northwestern Syria in the past month. A significant number of these men, women, and children are injured or sick and in need of medical care. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) supports the main hospital in charge of triaging and treating these patients at a location known as the "zero point," where people arrive on buses.

April 04, 2018

The number of patients treated for injuries related to land mines and improvised explosives has doubled at an MSF-supported hospital in Hassakeh in northeast Syria in recent months, with more than half of the injuries affecting children, some as young as one, the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said today.

January 29, 2018

Two airstrikes hit a hospital supported by Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Syria's Idlib governorate today, causing deaths and injuries and seriously damaging the facility, according to the hospital manager, who contacted MSF.

January 24, 2018

Intense fighting, including air strikes and ground shelling, has dramatically intensified in northern Syria since mid-December 2017, fueling one of the largest displacements of people since the war began. The increased violence, concentrated in areas of northeastern Hama, southern Aleppo, and southern Idlib governorates, is taking a profound toll on a population already suffering from nearly seven years of conflict.

January 12, 2018

Teams from Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) treated 33 patients with blast injuries in Raqqa city, Syria, during the first week of 2018, underlining the urgent need for demining in and around the war-torn city.

December 20, 2017

Humanitarian assistance for people living in southern Syria needs to increase significantly, the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said today, as it released two reports on the health of people in the war-torn area of eastern Daraa.

November 15, 2017

The international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières brings its exhibition on the plight of more than 65 million refugees and internally displaced people to Santa Monica this week. Forced From Home illustrates individual stories of the world’s displaced people, and helps visitors better understand the medical humanitarian consequences of the global refugee crisis.

November 15, 2017

After a four-and-a-half–month offensive, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and an international coalition finally recaptured the city of Raqqa from the so-called Islamic State (IS). The widespread devastation in Raqqa attests to the intensity of the fighting and air strikes—and raises questions about the fate of the city’s residents, civilians who, from the start of the offensive, were trapped with no access to humanitarian aid. Here, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) head of emergency operations Natalie Roberts reflects on the situation.

October 31, 2017
