Somalia (closed project)

In 2013, after more than two decades in the country, MSF OCA and all MSF operational centres were forced to discontinue their lifesaving medical activities in Somalia. This decision was prompted by the serious compromises we had had to make in order to continue our work and by Somali leaders’ lack of interest in preventing, or downright complicity in, violent attacks against our staff.
