Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has been managing this 70-bed trauma center since October 2005. Port Harcourt is located in the heart of Nigeria's densely populated, oil-rich Niger Delta region, where the struggle to gain power and control natural resources has sparked sporadic and deadly outbreaks of violence among a fragmented network of armed groups.
