Kenya: MSF staff relocated following incidents in Dadaab

MSF can confirm that following a series of recent incidents in the area of Dadaab, 40 staff has been relocated to Nairobi.

This is a preventive measure, which will unfortunately have a direct impact on our ability to provide the much needed medical assistance to the refugees. Two health posts out of four have already been closed as a result and some medical services such as antenatal care have been suspended.

MSF will continue to evaluate the situation hoping that security in the camps for the refugees and our staff can be assured. Once guarantees have been obtained, MSF can return to full activities as soon as possible.
