El Salvador


We're working with the Ministry of Health to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic by increasing ambulance services coverage & capacity in order to deal with the non-COVID-19 cases. We are also adapting mobile clinics services in neighborhoods & the exploring the potential of switching to home-based care services.

We are also doing assessment statuses of deported people from USA & Mexico, who are confined in hotels, to identify needs regarding IPC/isolation/diagnosis/treatment and how a response can be made. 


Can you make a donation to support our COVID-19 response?

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.
Can you help increase our capacity to respond by making a donation to our COVID-19 Crisis Appeal?






Violence between gangs and security forces has affected the population’s access to free and safe health services.  

MSF is running several projects in El Salvador, including in San Salvador and Soyapango.  

Invisible borders erected by the different gangs and constant clashes with security forces limit people’s mobility and prevent them to reach health centres or hospitals.

Teams work in basic healthcare and mental health in areas of the cities affected by high levels of violence.

Through community work, mental healthcare and mobile clinics, we aim to reach people most in need.
