Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams are battling to save children’s lives as a deadly outbreak of dengue hemorrhagic fever sweeps through Honduras’ second-largest city, San Pedro Sula.

Malaysia, with its booming economy and surrounded largely by poorer nations, attracts high numbers of migrants. Many of them come to find work in construction or agriculture. Others have fled violence and persecution in their home countries, like Myanmar or Indonesia's Aceh province. They often live in a twilight zone, with no official status and no rights to fall back on. They also have difficulty accessing health services.


Due to the ongoing political crisis in Honduras and related clashes between security forces and protesters, activities at the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) street children centre in Tegucigalpa have been disrupted, as MSF staff have had difficulties reaching the centre.

The MSF team in Honduras is getting ready to provide support to local health structures should they be overwhelmed by an influx of wounded in the coming days.

Due to an alarming increase in cases of dengue fever in Honduras this year, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has launched an emergency intervention in Tegucigalpa, capital of the Central American country, where the majority of cases have been reported.
