Migrants in Mexico
Every year, an estimated 500,000 people flee violence and poverty in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala and enter Mexico with the hope of reaching the United States.

In Mexico, these people are systematically exposed to further episodes of violence.

We provide mental health care and consultations in Ixtepec, Tenosique, Celaya, Mexico City, Acapulco, and Colonia Jardín.

In Tierra Caliente, Guerrero state, rural health posts were closed due to violence.

We provided emergency obstetric services, including caesarean sections, in Arcelia hospital, and started to run mobile clinics in San Miguel Totolapan and General Heliodoro Castillo municipalities.

Reynosa, Mexico: Caring for migrants and deportees

The situation in Reynosa, through the eyes of MSF and the people we assist

MSF has worked in Reynosa since 2017 treating victims of violence in the city, and more recently providing mental and medical care to migrants and deportees

Forced to leave their home countries because of gang violence and poverty, people on the move are increasingly prevented from reaching the US to ask for asylum.

Instead, they find themselves trapped at the border in areas of rampant violence, waiting to cross in deplorable humanitarian conditions.

Our teams have documented a pattern of violent displacement, persecution, sexual violence and forced repatriation. It’s a violence that starts in the country of origin and is replicated along their journeys through Mexico.

The story of 17-year-old José* is representative of many of the young patients we care for in our projects in Tegucigalpa and Choloma, in Honduras, and Reynosa, Mexico.
