We are providing technical support and advice to hospitals in seven hospitals across Belgium to increase the number of patients they can safely treat during the COVID-19 crisis.  

Outside of hospitals, mobile teams are providing support to nursing homes for the elderly, including psychological support and training for the staff and assistance in contract tracing for known COVID-19 cases. 

We are also providing triage and infection prevention and control support to organisations that work with vulnerable groups of people, such as the homeless and undocumented migrants. 

More than 100 full-time MSF staff are supporting COVID-19 projects in Belgium.

Right now, Médecins Sans Frontières is providing much needed support and medical care in over 30 countries to counter the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our teams are also gearing up to confront potential outbreaks in the hundreds of areas we were already working before the pandemic struck. We are deploying medical staff, sending supplies and applying nearly 50 years of experience fighting epidemics to protect the most vulnerable and save lives.

Since the closure of the Calais ‘Jungle’ camp in France in October 2016, Belgium has seen a slow but steady rise of migrants and refugees in need of healthcare and mental support.

Refugee assistance

Médecins Sans Frontières has developed several activities in Belgium to respond to the needs of migrants and refugees. In collaboration with several other organisations, we set up a ‘humanitarian hub’ at the Gare du Nord, near Maximilian Park, in Brussels. Here, vulnerable people are offered a complete package of services, including medical care, contact tracing, legal advice, and housing assistance.
