Lesbos - January 2021
Migrants and refugees from countries such as Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq continue to arrive in Greece in search of safety or to reach other destinations in Europe, only to find themselves stranded indefinitely.

Since the EU-Turkey deal in March 2016, migrants and refugees previously in transit through the Greek islands have been trapped there for an indeterminate time in overcrowded, unsafe and unhygienic conditions, without access to basic services, adequate shelter or information on their legal status.

We provide medical and mental healthcare to migrants on the Greek islands of Lesbos and Samos. Our activities include vaccinating migrant children against common childhood diseases, providing sexual and reproductive healthcare, treating chronic diseases and providing care for sexual violence.

Our teams in Lesbos have reported overwhelming numbers of people suffering from serious mental health conditions and we have made repeated calls for vulnerable people to be evacuated and policies of containment to be replaced by sustainable, humane solutions.

MSF teams in Greece are currently responding to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in Athens.
