Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is calling on global HIV/AIDS leaders at the International AIDS Conference in Durban to develop and implement an action plan to address the critical lack of access to HIV treatment in those countries in West and Central Africa where coverage remains below 30 percent. This comes as new MSF data from Southern Africa suggests that the implementation of “Test and Start” is feasible but that community-led outreach is necessary to test and link people living with HIV to care and support them on lifelong treatment.

Imagine trying to keep a life-or-death secret when it touches almost everyone you know. The statistics tell you that many people with whom you live, work or socialize share the same secret. Indeed, everyone you know has a parent, child, friend, colleague or neighbour who shares this secret. Yet you can never be sure who to confide in.

New MSF report "Help Wanted : Confronting the health care worker crisis to expand access to HIV/AIDS treatment"

In December 2007 MSF began providing essential healthcare to Zimbabwean migrants in the South African border town of Musina and in central Johannesburg. It is estimated that there are more than one million Zimbabwean migrants in South Africa.

In response to recent outbreaks of violence in Johannesburg, South Africa, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is currently providing emergency medical care for wounded people seeking shelter in police stations, community halls, and other locations where they have fled for safety. The violence, which is being aimed primarily at foreign nationals from neighbouring countries, first erupted in Alexandra township on May 11, and has since spread to several other townships, reaching central Johannesburg this past weekend.

Nearly three weeks after the first outbreak of violence against foreign nationals in Johannesburg, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) continues to provide medical assistance to displaced people throughout the city. MSF has also launched new activities in response to the unrest in Cape Town last week. The violence, which first erupted in Alexandra township on May 11, quickly spread throughout Johannesburg and to other parts of South Africa, including Western Cape Province. According to UNHCR, approximately 100,000 people have been displaced.
