Part of the reason the Refugee Convention was drafted was in response to the extreme suffering to which people fleeing violence and persecution are often exposed. In order to protect refugees, the convention sought to establish their rights and to outline the obligations that states have to protect them. But in 2017, while the global legal consensus on the rights of refugees remains intact, the humanitarian spirit that led to the convention appears to be in short supply.

In Mozambique, more than one in ten people are living with HIV/AIDS. Many of them suffer from opportunistic infections like Kaposi’s sarcoma, a cancer that causes painful and disfiguring skin lesions. Kaposi’s sufferers are frequently stigmatized by the obvious lesions.

Around 136,000 people have been displaced, due to the floods that hit the provinces neighbouring the Zambesi River about a month ago. Though the initial response has allowed for cautious optimism, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) notes that the situation of the flood victims in the Zambesia Province is far from satisfactory : health risks remain high.

Major floods devastate the Zambeze basin, the main river in Mozambique. MSF brings first aid to populations displaced by these floods, providing basic sanitation and hygiene conditions, as well as monitoring the presence of related diseases such as cholera.

As well, our general director and president share some of MSF’s biggest challenges and accomplishments from the past year.
