Emergency intervention for storm Amanda in San Salvador

El Salvador

The murder rate in El Salvador, once the world’s highest, is falling. Yet there are still many forms of violence in the country.

Violence between rival gangs and their clashes with security forces means people struggle to access healthcare.

MSF works in the capital, San Salvador, and the nearby city of Soyapango. We try to reach the people most in need through mobile clinics, community work and mental healthcare.

Our teams are also responding to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
