Malnutrition emergency: mobile clinic in Ranobe


MSF teams returned to Madagascar in 2021, to tackle the malnutrition crisis in the country’s south.

Since March 2021, MSF teams have been responding to the consequences of the worst drought to hit the region in 30 years, which has dwindled food supplies, leaving people in some areas starving.

Our teams are currently providing medical care and food aid support to people with moderate and severe malnutrition, including adolescents and adults.

We had previously worked in Madagascar in October and November 2017, supporting the Ministry of Health staff in tackling an outbreak of plague in the port city Tamatave (also known as Toamasina).
