We have now completed our COVID-19 response in France.
MSF’s dedicated COVID-19 response was completed due to a downward trend in new infections across the country and the reduced need for additional healthcare services.
MSF’s COVID-19 intervention focused on ensuring access to routine medical care for asylum seekers, refugees, undocumented migrants, foreign workers and homeless people in the Paris region. We provided medical support to test and treat people with COVID-19 symptoms and worked in two COVID-19 isolation centres set up for those unable to isolate at home, assisting patients in the Paris region and in Marseilles.
Our mobile clinics, set up near food distribution sites and encampments, provide general care for those living in the streets during the pandemic. These clinics, along with our regular activities to provide unaccompanied minors with medical, social, psychological and legal support, will continue to operate
