MSF closed our last projects in El Salvador in 2021.

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 previously worked in the capital, San Salvador, and the nearby city of Soyapango. Our teams also responded to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in the country. 

In 2021, we handed over our projects in El Salvador, having reached our objective of strengthening access to healthcare for communities affected by violence.
