EMERGENCY NOW: A call for action beyond summits
MSF’s reflections on the World Humanitarian Summit

květen 2016

Lékaři bez hranic se v posledních 18 měsících významně angažovali v procesu, který předcházel svolání Světového humanitárního summitu. Tato zpráva shrnuje naše zjištění související s klíčovými tématy „Agendy pro lidstvo“, která popsal generální tajemník OSN.


An Unprecedented Year

květen 2015

Zpráva shrnuje rok boje s epidemií eboly v Západní Africe, tou největší v dějinách vůbec. Tato smrtící nemoc si za rok vyžádala přes 10.000 životů. S epidemií bojovalo 1.3000 mezinárodních a 4.000 místních spolupracovníků Lékařů bez hranic. Zpráva hovoří také o tom, proč byla reakce světa a humanitárních organizací na epidemii tak pomalá.


Pushing the envelope

Srpen 2014

Globální fond je největším přispěvatelem na boj s třemi největšími zabijáky mezi nemocemi: HIV, tuberkulózou a maláriií. Globální fond nedávno představil nový model financování boje proti těmto nemocem, který bude mít mj. přímý dopad na miliony HIV pozitivních, kteří již mají přístup k antiretrovirové léčbě, i těch, kteří na ni dosud čekají. Tato zpráva se zabývá jeho dopady v terénu.

Kde všichni jsou? Reakce na humanitární krize v nejproblematičtějších oblastech

Červenec 2014

Během poskytování humanitární pomoci v přední linii probíhajících krizí Lékaři bez hranic silně vnímají omezení a nedostatky mezinárodní humanitární reakce na tyto krize. Její část bezpochyby funguje a zachraňuje lidské životy. Ale při doručování pomoci k těm nejpotřebnějším je možné a nutné udělat mnohem více. V roce 2016 se bude konat Světový humanitární summit, který svede dohromady experty z celého světa, aby zvážili strukturu a financování systému humanitární pomoci do budoucna. V předstihu před tímto důležitým setkáním Lékaři bez hranic zveřejnili zprávu Kde všichni jsou?, která se zaměřuje na některé klíčové otázky spojené s mezinárodní reakcí na humanitární krize.

It's not just about drinking tea: Dialogue between MSF, its patients and their communities

May 2014

Central to the work of MSF are its patients – the people affected by distress and conflict whom MSF seeks to treat. MSF’s medical and operational staff, both international and national, choose to bring their humanitarian imperative and medical ethics as close to their patients as a medical humanitarian organisation should. But while MSF ensures proximity to its patients and their communities, it is acutely conscious that crossing the geographic and cultural barriers to be with its patients in times of crisis demands more than medical skill and logistical know-how. Providing optimal medical care to its patients requires detailed understanding of their political and cultural context, their needs and habits, and the impact on them of the crises that MSF is there to address.

Between rhetoric and reality: The ongoing struggle to access healthcare in Afghanistan

February 2014

2014 is another crucial year for Afghanistan: after 12 years the US-led NATO military intervention in the country has entered its final phase, and presidential and provincial elections are scheduled for April. As the bulk of international troops withdraw before the end of the year, the world's attention is rapidly turning elsewhere. What interest remains in Afghanistan is firmly fixed on military drawdown, security transition and pre-electoral wrangling. Conspicuously lacking is a focus on the daily reality for Afghans, trapped in an escalating conflict - indeed 2013 was reportedly the second most violent year for civilians since 2001.



Improving paediatric TB care in Tajikistan

November 2013

Children are, globally, the most vulnerable patient group in tuberculosis treatment and have been neglected for too long. Estimates for paediatric TB indicate that it accounts for 10-15 percent of all tuberculosis cases in the 22 highest-burden countries and worldwide kills at least 130,000 children each year.

The illness of migration

July 2013

When states close their borders to keep unwanted migrants away, they contribute to illness and suffering. In this report, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) looks back at 10 years of medical humanitarian assistance for migrants in the European Union and in transit countries. Our experience shows that restrictive immigration policies make it harder and much more dangerous for people to seek safety and a better life for themselves and their families.

Violence, vulnerability and migration: Trapped at the gates of Europe

March 2013

Over the last ten years, as the European Union (EU) has tightened its border controls and increasingly externalised its migration policies, Morocco has changed from being just a transit country for migrants en route to Europe to being both a transit and destination country by default. MSF’s experience demonstrates that the longer sub-Saharan migrants stay in Morocco the more vulnerable they become.

Syria two years on: the failure of international aid so far

March 2013

After two years of an extremely violent conflict which has resulted in more than 70,000 dead according to the UN, the Syrian people are faced with a humanitarian catastrophe. Despite repeated requests, MSF has not received permission from the government to work in the country, but has been able to open three hospitals in the opposition-held areas in the north where assistance remains well below the level of the needs.

Hear my voice: Somalis on living in a humanitarian crisis

February 2013

Violence, displacement and food shortages are salient features of Somalia’s humanitarian landscape. The report draws on the testimonies of more than 800 Somali patients attending MSF medical facilities in Somalia and in Ethiopian refugee camps.

Misery beyond the war zone: Life for Syrian refugees and displaced populations in Lebanon

February 2013

The ongoing crisis in Syria is forcing ever more Syrians to flee their homeland in search of safety.The humanitarian needs of this growing population are immense and continue to grow. Half of the refugees are not receiving required medical care. MSf is calling for immediate steps to be taken to improve shelter and provide aid to new arrivals.


DR-TB drugs under the microscope

November 2012

Tuberculosis (TB) is a curable disease that continues to kill nearly 1.4 million people across the globe each year, and is the main cause of death in people living with HIV/AIDS. Yet the response to the epidemic remains inadequate. With 94 percent of patients at risk of MDR-TB (those previously treated) not having access to tests capable of diagnosing MDR-TB, and only 19 percent of people with MDR-TB having been enrolled on treatment in 2011, the full extent of the burden is unknown and undertreated.

Older people in crises

October 2012

There is emerging evidence that the needs of older people in crises have not been properly addressed by emergency aid. There are often very high death rates amongst elderly populations in emergencies, partly due to their inherent vulnerability and partly due to services that inadequately deal with their needs.

Progress under threat

July 2012

While significant gains made in the fight against HIV/AIDS in the past decade are encouraging, countries most affected by the pandemic continue to struggle to place enough people on treatment and to implement the best science and strategies to fight the disease. The current situation in these five affected countries reminds us that the HIV epidemic is still an emergency in many African countries.

Somebody Help

May 2012

The forgotten population of Jebel Si in North Darfur is left without healthcare as MSF struggles to continue its medical activities in the region

The Right Shot: Extending the reach of affordable and adapted vaccines

May 2012

Lack of information on both the price and the different product characteristics of vaccines has been limiting countries’ ability to operate affordable and effective immunisation programmes. This publication serves as a resource for immunisation stakeholders, such as donors, implementing partners, and developing countries, which are ultimately responsible for their national immunisation programmes.

Overview: MSF activities in Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia

April 2012

The data presented, though being provisional, account for MSF’s medical activities and financial income and expenditures in this region, whereas the narrative sketches how MSF as a medical aid organisation responded to this evolving crisis.

From the ground up: Building a drug-resistant TB programme in Uganda

March 2012

In this report, MSF calls on all key stakeholders to assure quality rapid TB diagnosis, treatment and care, and argues that a scale-up of the decentralised and community-based approach, including access to second-line TB drugs at district level, is the most feasible method of averting Uganada's impending TB crisis.

Maternal Death: The Avoidable Crisis

March 2012

Around the world women continue to die needless deaths due to medical complications that are preventable or treatable. This report highlights how limited access to skilled staff, drugs and medical equipment means that a thousand women a day are denied the chance to become mothers.

Lives in the balance: the urgent need for HIV and TB treatment in Myanmar

22nd February 2012

Central African Republic: State of Silent Crisis

November 2011

The Central African Republic (CAR) today finds itself in a state of chronic medical emergency. Five separate retrospective mortality surveys, carried out by MSF and other researchers, in prefectures accounting for the majority of the population, show excess mortality above what is considered to be the “emergency threshold.”

Treating drug-resistant TB: What does it take?

October 2011

Tuberculosis (TB) is a curable disease that kills nearly 1.45 million people across the globe each year and is the main cause of death for people living with HIV/AIDs. Of the 8.8 million new tuberculosis cases each year, 440,000 are forms of the disease that are multidrug-resistant, meaning they cannot be treated with the two primary antibiotics used to treat TB.


Measles: Analysis and critique of outbreak response in 2009-10

December 2014

During 2009 and 2010 there were regional outbreaks of measles in central and southern Africa. The measles outbreaks were all distinct in nature, but similar in terms of the burden they represented on health services, and in their ability to cause fatalities. This report aims to highlight the main challenges of dealing with such outbreaks and the ways in which the responses deviated from optimal response strategies, in preparation for developing advocacy strategies for outbreaks of similar scope within the region.

Fighting a dual epidemic: Treating TB in a high HIV prevalence setting in rural Swaziland

November, 2010

Giving developing countries the best shot: An overview of vaccine access and R&D

April, 2010

MSF and Oxfam show how access to newer vaccines and the development of products for developing countries is faltering and failing to provide life-saving vaccines to children in developing countries.

Turkmenistan's Opaque Health System

April, 2010

The people of Turkmenistan are being failed by their healthcare system, by their government, and by the international community. The system that is supposed to ensure their health is instead designed to conceal problems. This is not a case of individual practitioners failing to do their jobs but one that is far more systematic.

Sexual violence and migration

March, 2010

This briefing paper highlights the problem of sexual violence against Sub-Saharan migrant women, who arrive in Morocco on their way to Europe. Through the data and testimonies gathered in its medical-humanitarian projects, Médecins Sans Frontières hopes to contribute to finding a comprehensive answer to this problem, which increasingly affects more, and younger, women.


HIV/AIDS treatment in developing countries: The battle for long-term survival has just begun

July, 2009

Over three million people living with HIV/AIDS in the developing world receive antiretroviral treatment. However, the medicines and diagnostic tools available are inadequate to respond fully to their needs. It is now time to invest in improving the public health approach.

Shattered lives: Immediate medical care for victims of sexual violence

July, 2009

Through this report MSF shares its experience in providing medical care, counseling and other forms of support to thousands of victims of sexual violence in many countries around the world. MSF hopes it will inform and inspire health officials, aid workers and others who should be involved in providing such support.

Chagas: It's time to break the silence

July, 2009

One hundred years since its discovery, many of those infected with Chagas disease are still unaware that they are sick. For one hundred years, Chagas disease has been a silent illness. The time has come to break the silence.

Over the past four months, the Thai military has used heightened restrictions and coercive tactics to pressure some 4,700 ethnic Lao Hmong refugees to renounce their claims for protection and accept a forced return to Laos.

Tuberculosis: New faces of an old disease

March, 2009

TB is a deadly killer, responsible for 1.7 million deaths in 2006. The vast majority of cases occur in developing countries. Worse, this ‘disease of the past’ has returned with new faces that are stretching our capacities to breaking point.

"No food or medicines here until you die": MSF exposes emergency nutritional and medical needs in Guinean prisons

A Preventable Fate: The Failure of ART Scale-Up in Myanmar

November, 2008

Thousands of people are needlessly dying due to a severe lack of lifesaving HIV/AIDS treatment in Myanmar. Unable to continue shouldering the primary responsibility for responding to one of Asia’s worst HIV crises, MSF insists that the government of Myanmar and other international organisations urgently and rapidly scale-up the provision of antiretroviral therapy.

Full Prescription: Better malaria treatment for more people, MSF’s experiemce

September, 2008

In a new report launched today, MSF said many more lives can be saved if newer effective strategies to tackle malaria are more widely implemented. The report describes the organisation’s work in Sierra Leone, Chad and Mali, and shows that unnecessary deaths can be avoided with simple, affordable treatment and diagnostic tools available today.

Running in place: Too many patients still in urgent need of HIV/AIDS treatment

August, 2008

HIV/AIDS treatment and management are essential components of many MSF programs worldwide. Currently MSF provides antiretroviral therapy (ART) for over 140,000 patients in 27 countries, with about 10,000 of those patients being children. In conjunction with this year’s International AIDS Conference in Mexico City, this document presents MSF’s current “state of play” in providing quality care to people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in resource-limited settings.
