As Moderna releases astronomical Q3 sales figures, MSF tells the corporation it’s high time to share the technology with WHO mRNA vaccine tech transfer Hub in South Africa
11-4 | Following the release of US pharmaceutical company Moderna’s astronomical third quarter 2021 sales figures from its only product, the COVID-19 vaccine, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) urged the company to immediately share its mRNA vaccine technology and know-how through the World Health Organization's (WHO) COVID-19 mRNA vaccine technology transfer Hub in South Africa.
11-1 | On October 28, 2021, a team of five people from Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF), travelled to the Bambu health district in Ituri province to assist isolated communities.When the team were travelling back at around 15:50, unidentified gunmen fired at the MSF vehicle for an unexplained reason, with two members of the team sustaining bullet wounds – one in the right armpit and another in their pelvis. Our two injured colleagues have since received healthcare and are in a stable condition. The entire team was later evacuated to the town of Bunia.
10-6 | Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is shocked and deeply saddened by the news of the death of two of our colleagues, Mohammad Hassan, a 37-year-old nurse employed by MSF in Shinkafi, Zamfara province in northwest Nigeria, and Atef Seif Mohammed Al-Harazy, a 35-year-old nurse working in the MSF supported General hospital in Dhi As Sufal district (Ibb governorate), Yemen.
8-18 | Last week, after weeks of intense fighting, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA, also known as the Taliban) entered the city of Kabul as the government collapsed. The IEA declared the war over and assumed control over the country.While many people and organisations have fled Afghanistan, our teams are staying put, providing essential medical care to people across the country. Given the current instability, displacement of people and acute health needs, we are concerned about access to healthcare for everyone.
