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.

Although Guinea has a relatively low HIV prevalence of about 1.4 per cent, only slightly more than half of those living with HIV are receiving antiretroviral treatment.

In collaboration with the Ministry of Health, our teams manage eight health centres in the capital, Conakry, where we offer HIV testing and care, with a focus on prevention of mother-to-child transmission of the disease, as well as treatment for sexual violence and tuberculosis. We also manage a 31-bed facility at Donka hospital for people with advanced HIV.

In December, our community project in Kouroussa prefecture, in the east of the country, closed its doors. For over five years, we had worked with communities to develop activities to tackle malaria, malnutrition and other diseases among children. As well as working in health centres, MSF trained and equipped health workers and volunteers who worked in the community, with the objective of improving the detection, treatment and referral systems for children with malaria and other diseases.

We also responded to two outbreaks of Lassa fever and one outbreak of measles in 2022, providing access to care, while advocating for the World Health Organization and the Ministry of Health to initiate a vaccination campaign.
