1-15 | Six months after the murder of our three colleagues Maria, Tedros and Yohannes, the full circumstances of, and responsibility for, their killing remains unclear.On 24 June 2021, 35-year-old María Hernandez, our emergency coordinator; 32-year-old Yohannes Halefom Reda, our assistant coordinator; and 31-year-old Tedros Gebremariam, our driver, were travelling in the Tigray Region when we lost contact with them. On 25 June, their vehicle was found empty 100 to 400 meters away, their lifeless bodies.

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.
