MSF began providing treatment for HIV in Moldova’s breakaway region, Transnistria, in 2007.

We opened an HIV clinic in Tiraspol, conducted training for the local health professionals, provided antiretroviral medicines and lab materials, and rehabilitated and equipped the health facilities. Our programme also included providing care in three prisons in the region. In 2009, with increasing availability of antiretroviral drugs, we left Moldova.

Following the start of the war in Ukraine in 2022, as refugees fled into Moldova, MSF returned to the country to provide basic medical and mental health care at border crossings.
