Fleeing from Kasai

Angola

MSF left Angola at the end of 2018 but continues to monitor the situation, ready to respond in case of new emergencies

In 2016, MSF renewed its operations in Angola after an absence of nine years, supporting local authorities after an outbreak of yellow fever affected the country.

We consolidated our operations in 2017 and 2018, supporting the health authorities to respond to emergencies - from the water, sanitation and healthcare needs of more than 30,000 people who had fled conflict in neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo to tackling outbreaks of cholera and malaria.

Besides direct management of patients, MSF also trained officials from the Ministry of Health and donated medicines and medical supplies to provincial and municipal hospitals. We also worked with the Ministry of Health to improve its disease surveillance and alerts mechanism.
