During 2016, We shifted our focus from providing lifesaving surgery and medical care to people on the move to addressing the specific needs of those stuck in unsanitary camps.
On Lesbos, for example, we carried out basic healthcare consultations across the island, through our mobile clinics and inside Moria and Kara Tepe registration centres.
We also opened a clinic in Mytilene town centre offering sexual and reproductive healthcare, treatment for chronic diseases and mental health support.
