COVID-19 Outbreak

Médecins Sans Frontières is deeply concerned about how COVID-19 might affect people living in precarious environments such as the homeless, those living in refugee camps in Greece or Bangladesh, or conflict-affected groups in Yemen or Syria.

Our key priority is to keep our regular medical programs running for the tens of thousands of patients and extremely vulnerable communities we help support around the world. 

We must do everything to prevent and delay further spreading of the virus. We know from our experience that trust in the response and health authorities is an essential component for outbreak control. Clear, timely and honest communication and guidance is needed. People need to be empowered to protect themselves.

Below are some practical tips on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19:
