Médecins Sans Frontières South Africa: Access Campaign Advocacy Officer

Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is an independent international medical humanitarian organisation. MSF delivers medical care to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural or man-made disasters, or exclusion from health care in more than 60 countries.

The Campaign for Access to Essential Medicines is an international MSF project launched in 1999 to improve access and stimulate development of adapted medical tools (medicines, vaccines, diagnostics and other health technologies) for resource-limited settings. 

Almost All of the Hospitals Around the City are Receiving Wounded

A three-person Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) team is currently in Tripoli with supplies and is starting to support facilities that are already overwhelmed with patients wounded in the fighting currently taking place in the Libyan capital. MSF has also dispatched teams to Zlitan, east of Tripoli, and Al Zawiyah, to the west, to support hospitals faced with an influx of wounded. Speaking from Tripoli, Jonathan Whittall, MSF Emergency Coordinator, describes the situation on the ground.
