Malawi Prisons - Chichiri and Maula

Social violence and exclusion

Many people are unable to access healthcare simply because of who they are. They may be afraid to seek help, or are excluded because they are forced to live outside of mainstream societal bounds.

People who are excluded include undocumented migrants, street children, sex workers, prisoners, drug addicts or the mentally ill. Sometimes, entire communities are systematically neglected by relevant authorities. These might be people who live in slums, or communities hit by criminal violence and gang warfare. Our teams provide medical, psychological and social support to people cut off from health services. Our work also involves drawing attention to the obstacles patients face in accessing healthcare.

Violence in Guerrero, Mexico

Violence in Guerrero, Mexico

Since 2016, MSF has run mobile clinics in Guerrero, Mexico - one of Mexico's most violent states. Violence is something that affects different communities in the state of Guerrero, mainly due to fighting between different organised crime groups over the cultivation of poppies and avocados. This violence causes communities in the affected villages to live in confinement and leaves people without access to healthcare or education. Our teams attempt to fill these gaps through mobile clinics offering health services including preventive measure against COVID-19.
