Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has been forced to cancel a conference on medical ethics due to take place in Bahrain in April, because of a lack of assurances from authorities, MSF announced today. The conference was to be held in the Bahraini capital, Manama, April 10 and 11.

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.
