THE DARIEN ROUTE FOR MIGRANTS IN PANAMA
Migrants making the crossing from northwest Colombia into eastern Panama face often brutal violence.

Those migrating northwards cross through the Darién jungle, South America's only land route heading north. People face often extreme violence, with migrants often robbed, beaten, raped, or even killed.

MSF teams are working in Bajo Chiquito, in eastern Panama, providing medical and mental healthcare to people on the move.
