COVID-19 intervention in the Amazon region of Peru
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.

MSF teams are currently responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, where our teams are providing treatment to patients and undertaking early detection of potential cases in Huacho hospital. Teams had also responded in 2020, treating patients in Tarapoto, Huánuco and Tingo María hospitals.
