Activities 2015 International Activity Report
MSF completed the closure of all its post-typhoon activities in the Philippines this year.
By June 2015, the response and recovery activities put in place to support communities affected by typhoon Haiyan in 2013 were all closed. These included support for maternal and child health activities in Leyte provincial hospital and the rehabilitation of three hospitals on Leyte and Samar islands.
During the year MSF conducted a number of assessments in different locations in the country to identify possible needs for long-term programmes. As a result, a sexual and reproductive health programme will be opened in 2016 in the capital Manila. This programme will be run in collaboration with Likhaan, a national organisation, and will include early screening and vaccination against the human papilloma virus (HPV) to prevent cervical cancer.
Year MSF first worked in the country: 1987.
