Providing integrated health care to migrants and refugees in the Egyptian capital.
Our work in Egypt
In Egypt, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) provides health care services for migrants, asylum seekers, and refugees who have been subjected to violence.
What's happening in Egypt?
Egypt is a key transit and destination country for African and Middle Eastern refugees and migrants, many of whom have been subjected to violence or persecution in their countries.
The number of migrants arriving in Egypt has risen sharply in recent years due to conflict and instabilities in Syria, Iraq, Sudan, South Sudan, Eritrea, Somalia, Libya, and several other countries. Migrants are struggling with poor service integration, limited employment opportunities, and difficulties accessing health care due to decreased funding.
How we're helping in Egypt
We run a clinic in the capital, Cairo, to respond to the specific needs of refugees and migrants. The facility offers a comprehensive package of care for victims of violence, including general health care, gynecology, mental health support, and psychosocial consultations, as well as specialist referrals when needed.
The program also has a social component, linking patients to partner organizations for housing, food, orientation guidance, protection services, and advice concerning other social issues. Our teams accompany patients through their recovery process and conduct awareness-raising and outreach activities among migrant communities.
