MSF first worked in Bahrain in 2011 and closed its projects in 2012.

MSF ran activities in Bahrain for one year after political unrest.

MSF worked in Bahrain in 2011, following political unrest in the country, where we operated a first aid post. The post was closed in July 2011, but an MSF team remained in the country until March 2012, when our staff were refused further entry. As a result, MSF ended activities in Bahrain in 2012.
