Diabetes, shrapnel wounds, and newborn twins: An MSF hospital in Syria

The conflict in Syria shows no sign of abating, and the number of people in need of urgent medical care increases day by day. In addition to those injured by war there are countless people affected by common health problems that would be entirely manageable in a normal setting. Treatable health issues like diabetes, hypertension, and maternal health can quickly become deadly without access to medical care. As the number of people in need of urgent medical care in Syria continues to rise, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is running six hospitals, four health centers, and several mobile clinic programs inside the country.
