Twenty years after the events that followed the fall of Srebrenica’s Muslim enclave, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is publishing for the first time a case study that explores the organization’s role and internal dilemmas surrounding the massacre of 8,000 people men over the age of 16.

The Executive Board of UNITAID, the international health financing agency, will meet Dec. 14-15 in Geneva to decide on the future direction of the Patent Pool for AIDS medicines. International medical humanitarian organization Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is concerned that a number of pharmaceutical companies are seeking to exclude developing countries categorized as ‘middle-income’ from benefiting from medicines made under licence from the Pool.  If these companies are successful, people living with HIV/AIDS will be made to pay the price.

Doctor, psychologist and nurse will travel to affected and isolated areas.

Neglect can be overcome and millions of lives can be saved.
