Care for victims of violence in Extreme North region of Cameroon

Cameroon

Since 2011, violent attacks by armed opposition groups and the counterinsurgency operations of the Nigerian army have forced hundreds of thousands of people from northeast Nigeria to seek refuge in Cameroon, Chad and Niger.

In addition, a second, little-known humanitarian situation has also been evolving in the country's Northwest and Southwest Regions. Violence between government forces and separatist non-state armed groups from the English-speaking community has escalated sharply in recent years, forcing hundreds of thousands of people from their homes and leaving them in dire need of humanitarian assistance.

MSF teams are currently responding to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in the country, providing training for hospital staff in different areas of the country.
