South Sudan: Even running away is not enough - Latest attacks in Jonglei, perpetuate a pattern of extreme violence
1-24 | In the State of Jonglei in South Sudan, civilians continue to bear the brunt of inter-communal fighting. Wounded patients are still arriving at the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) hospital in Pibor, three weeks after the violent attack on the town and outlying villages in Pibor County. Many were injured in the bush, where thousands have remained, afraid to come out of hiding. MSF medical teams are now treating serious wound infections, some several weeks old.
11-18 | Health facilities in the Gaza Strip face a serious shortage of drugs and medical supplies. In late September, 36% of essential drugs were lacking. While Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) makes regular donations, no aid actor can meet the full range of needs.The Israeli embargo of the Gaza Strip, which began in 2007, together with years of financial crisis within the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah and the chronic lack of cooperation between the Palestinian Authority and Gaza authorities, have caused harm and threaten Gaza's health system and its patients.
10-7 | The number of people in the Gaza Strip suffering the after-effects of serious injuries has increased in recent years. However, with the embargo currently in effect, it is very difficult to obtain access to appropriate, specialized care. In July 2010, MSF signed an agreement with the Gaza health authorities and opened a reconstructive surgery program. In September 2011, 24 patients received treatment through an ad hoc hand surgery mission.
