Medical help in the Syrian Refugee Camps in countries neighbouring Syria – Jordan, Lebanon.
MSF is able to continue limited medical facilities inside Syria and support directly more than 150 medical facilities. But large swathes of the country are out of reach. In the face of this crisis, the previously functioning health system has collapsed and scores of thousands of medical staff have fled. Many others inside the country have been targeted for their work. There are massive unmet needs, millions of frightened and vulnerable people, and a dreadfully restricted aid response. Despite the extremely challenging security context—five MSF staff were abducted in early 2014, and subsequently released—MSF continues to operate medical facilities inside Syria,as well as supporting directly more than 100 clinics, health posts, and field hospitals. MSF is also working with patients from Syria who have fled to Jordan, Lebanon, and Iraq. In recent weeks and months, controls on refugees seeking to enter Jordan and Lebanon have been tightened, increasing the difficulties of Syrians wishing to flee the country.
