In recent months, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams in Serbia have treated an increasing number of patients who reported widespread violence and cruel and degrading treatment allegedly perpetrated by Hungarian authorities at the Serbian-Hungarian border. The international medical humanitarian organization calls on Hungarian authorities to investigate and take immediate action to stop these brutal practices.

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.

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

In 2008, MSF welcomed support from 80,000 individual Canadians who contributed directly to our efforts to bring life-saving medical care to those in need. In our annual report for 2008, you will find information on MSF projects funded thanks to this generous support, through detailed descriptions of our programs as well as our audited financial statements. As well, our general director and president share some of MSF’s biggest challenges and accomplishments from the past year.

In northern Mozambique, MSF is empowering HIV-patients to take an active part in managing their disease.
