Chapter 9 - Route

Refugees, IDPs and people on the move

More than 68.5 million people worldwide have been forcibly displaced.

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.
