Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare. MSF offers assistance to people based on need, irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.
The New York-based Cell is in the midst of a major transformation. In 2022, the cell will seek to regionalize its portfolio by developing operations in Latin America in addition to its projects in Haiti and Liberia. Thus, during the first half of 2022, the Cell will carry out exploratory missions in order to propose projects in Latin America; areas of intervention have to be defined. In Haiti, MSF manages a trauma center with a burns unit and an emergency room. In Liberia, MSF manages a pediatric hospital and an epilepsy-mental health project.
In Haiti and Liberia, the Cell has developed surgical projects although targeting different populations: victims of violence in Haiti and children in Liberia. This has led the NYC Cell to collaborate closely with the hospital management unit.
Although in totally different intervention contexts, the Cell has developed a strong “Learning & Development” package of activities. In Liberia, the main objective for 2022 will be to transfer its pediatric activities (medical and surgical) to a Ministry of Health facility while strengthening its epilepsy-mental health activity. This second project has been integrated to the MoH medical services from its opening. In Haiti, this year, the main objective of the cell will be the construction of an ambulatory unit with a day surgery delivery package.
Security management is a key issue in Haiti.
