Challenge

Women and girls are often more vulnerable in unstable settings, including in times of war, conflict, or natural disaster. They may be targeted as a way of intimidating entire communities. And of course, women have particular health risks that men do not. Some 830 women die every day from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth; 99 percent of all maternal deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. Most of the patients treated by MSF are women and children.

Solution

When an emergency strikes, medical needs are often serious & represent one of the first priorities for those affected. The ability to respond quickly and independently can mean the difference between life & death for thousands of people. The generous, ongoing support of donors, before and during emergencies, enables MSF to deploy medical professionals, equipment and materials very quickly in emergencies. With the help of our donors, MSF is able to provide aid and hope to all those that affected.

Long-Term Impact

Just to highlight some of our activities in 2017 alone: MSF was able to provide 10 648 300 outpatient consultations, 288 900 assisted births, including c-sections and 81 300 severely malnourished children were admitted to inpatient feeding programs. 2 095 000 people were vaccinated against measles in response to an outbreak and 23 900 migrants & refugees were rescued & assisted at sea. Continued support means that we can reach even more people and provide more medical help in the coming years.
