COVID-19 intervention in the Amazon region of Peru

MSF ended our latest activities in Peru, for the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2020.

MSF has responded to diseases including HIV and, more recently, COVID-19, while also responding to disasters such as earthquakes.

Teams in Peru provided HIV treatment to people in prisons until 2006 and responded to a massive earthquake on the southeastern coast in August 2007.

Between June and October 2020, we responded to the COVID-19 pandemic, where our teams provided treatment to severely ill patients in Tarapoto, Huánuco and Tingo María hospitals.
