Libya: Providing assistance to migrants and refugees
Jean-Guy Vataux, head of mission in Libya, explains how MSF is providing assistance to migrants, refugees and asylum seekers. Most of them have been robbed, taken under the control of criminal networks, abused, jailed, beaten up or tortured. Some have died. Since July 2016, MSF has provided lifesaving and primary healthcare to refugees and migrants detained in Tripoli. A new project opened in early 2017 to find ways to assist migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers in the Misrata area. These activities are now expanding.
