Diffa, Niger: a region devastated by the Boko Haram crisis

Niger

Niger is affected by violence and population displacements in its border regions that form part of the Central Sahel and the Lake Chad Basin.

To improve healthcare for displaced people, host communities and the population at large ─ in particular children ─ we work with the Ministry of Health and community health workers to deliver integrated health programmes throughout the country.

MSF teams are currently responding to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in Niger.
