Refugees in Bosnia

Refugees, IDPs and people on the move

Nearly 90 million people worldwide were forcibly displaced at the end of 2021, and over 100 million people are estimated to be displaced in 2022, according to UNHCR.

The number of people who have been forcibly displaced is now more than double the number 10 years ago, and the most since World War II. There are many reasons for flight, including war, persecution, conflict, natural disaster, destitution and repression.

With health and well-being jeopardized, the lives of the most vulnerable can be at risk. The majority are internally displaced people (IDPs), meaning they haven't crossed a border and have stayed within their country.

MSF teams work alongside people on the move at their points of arrival or during the treacherous journeys they undertake, inside and outside their countries.
