MSF teams offer health services for women and children, including care and counseling for victims of sexual and gender-based violence, as well as mental health consultations and treatment for tuberculosis, HIV, and a range of non-communicable diseases.
We run pediatric and adult wards at the hospital, serving both refugees and host communities. We also assist deliveries in our maternity room and facilitate emergency surgical and obstetrical referrals to the nearby government hospital.
Throughout 2020, we supported emergency preparedness and response activities. We ran a 100-bed COVID-19 quarantine facility in Nduta camp and trained more than 430 staff to respond to a potential outbreak. In April, following floods in Lindi, on the country’s southeastern coast, our teams donated medicines to prevent and treat malaria, acute diarrhea, and dehydration. In May, we organized a measles vaccination campaign after an outbreak in the camp.
