Nigeria: Fighting the worst meningitis C epidemic in nine years

Nigeria

Continued violence and armed conflict in Nigeria’s Borno state has uprooted more than two million people.

MSF has been responding to disease outbreaks and emergency health needs in Nigeria for many years, focusing on maternal and paediatric healthcare throughout the country and scaling up our activities in the northeast as vast numbers of people caught up in the conflict depend on aid to survive.

Our teams are currently responding to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in Nigeria.

Why are we here?
