Medical Care Under Fire - Interview with Francoise Duroch

Francoise Duroch of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) describes how conflict and violence disrupt healthcare and how medical workers find themselves the direct targets of violence. She talks about how the stigma attached to sexual violence prevents victims seeking support. Finally, she explains how MSF is sometimes forced to suspend its activities and the conditions under which the organisation will go public about a situation.
