MSF first worked in Algeria in 1980 and closed its projects in 2016.

MSF began working in Algeria in 1980 after an earthquake struck the country and provided assistance in different capacities until 2016.

We ran specialised projects on training for mental health counselling and HIV treatment for at-risk groups including migrants, intravenous drug users and sex workers. We also provided emergency response during disasters, such as the 2001 flood in the capital Algiers and after an earthquake in 2003. We closed our last project, an HIV programme, in Algeria in 2016.
