MSF closed its projects in Mongolia in 2010.

MSF worked in Mongolia in 1998 until 2001 and again in 2010 as the needs of different communities grew.

MSF first worked in Mongolia in 1998 on an HIV and sexually transmitted infection prevention programme. In 2001, this was handed over to the government and other non-governmental organisations.

After nine years out of the country, we returned in 2010 to help remote communities prepare for an upcoming dzud, a mass loss of livestock – the primary source of food and income for people – following harsh summer and winter seasons. We helped the preparation by distributing first aid kits, improving health facility infrastructure and providing a back-up supply of essential drugs.
