MSF started working in Kosovo in 1992 and withdrew in 2000.

MSF provided relief assistance in Kosovo from 1992 until 2000.

MSF first worked in Kosovo in 1992 to provide communities with vaccination, medicines, and water and sanitation services. We also supported official health facilities and dispensaries operated by other organisations in the country.

In 1998, internally displaced people needed more support and so we offered medical consultations through mobile clinics and provided relief assistance. MSF had to withdraw from Kosovo in March 1999 after NATO airstrikes began but returned soon after in June 1999.

We continued to work in Kosovo until May 2000.
