In Benin, MSF works on reducing illness and deaths among pregnant women and new-born babies.

MSF returned to Benin in 2022 to address women’s health needs. In the département (region) of Couffo, in the country’s southwest, we provide sexual and reproductive healthcare in health centres and at the Klouékanmè, Toviklin et Lalo health zone hospital.

We provide consultations on contraception, and pre- and post-natal services. We also provide care to victims of sexual violence, and safe abortion and post-abortion care to people who request it. Our teams help women deliver their babies and provide care to new-borns.  

Our previous work in Benin included treating people with Buruli ulcer and providing HIV treatment; these activities we handed over in 2004 and 2005, respectively.
