8-18 | "On Sunday, August 14, at about 11 p.m., a group of armed men burst into the Raoul Pierre Louis hospital in the Carrefour area of Port-au-Prince. In an emergency room supported by Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), these men with firearms seized a patient and coldly executed him just outside the hospital.This took place as we are planning to open an emergency centre in this area, west of Martissant, in 2023, and we are appalled by the barbarity of this killing which violates our humanitarian principles and the protection that this patient should have had in this hospital.

7-4 | Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) calls on the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to renew the cross-border resolution (UNSCR 2585) expiring on the 10th of July 2022 for the provision of humanitarian aid into northwest Syria.Around 60% of people residing in this area, more than half of whom are internally displaced, risk losing access to desperately needed humanitarian and medical aid if the resolution is not renewed.
