MSF first worked in Morocco in 1997 and closed its migrant health projects in 2013.
MSF began working in Morocco in 1997 to provide care to excluded communities in Rabat, Casablanca and Tangier. Our programmes were focused on increasing access to maternal and sexual healthcare. In the early 2000s, we began providing support to migrants arriving in Morocco, by visiting hostels where people stayed and providing outpatient consultations and referrals through mobile clinics.
In 2010, MSF provided care to migrants injured during mass raids and expulsions by the Moroccan police force. In 2013 we handed our projects over to local health and human rights organisations.
