MSF briefly returned to Lesotho in 2021 to respond to COVID-19.

MSF began working in Lesotho in 2006 to assist the country’s response to growing rates of HIV and recently returned to assist with COVID-19.

In 2006, we supported clinics and a hospital in the Scott Hospital Health Service Area to provide antiretroviral treatment and comprehensive care to people living with HIV. MSF supported Lesotho through a health worker shortage, that peaked in 2007, which impacted the country’s ability to deliver healthcare. By 2009, we had handed over six of the 15 clinics we had been supporting to the government, and the remaining projects were handed over in November 2015. 

In 2021, we briefly returned to Lesotho to assist in the country’s response to COVID-19, including by training medical staff.
