Measles Vaccination on Kassa Island.

Guinea

In Guinea, MSF teams provide support to people living with HIV and the health needs of children at a community level.

While Guinea has a relatively low prevalence of HIV, at around 1.4 per cent, just over half of people living with HIV receiving antiretrovirals (ARVs). In collaboration with the Ministry of Health, we run a 31-bed centre in Donka hospital, Conakry, to treat people with advanced HIV.

MSF teams work in Kouroussa prefecture, where we provide training to community health volunteers and health centres to improve the detection, treatment and referral systems for children with illnesses such as malaria. We also treat children with severe malaria at the prefecture-level hospital.

Between April and August 2020, MSF teams provided care to people with mild COVID-19 at a treatment centre in Conakry.
