Snapshots from Northern Syria
Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed in this devastating war. Almost 12 million people have been uprooted and humanitarian assistance has been consistently obstructed or denied.

Civilian areas have been routinely bombed and deprived of assistance, and access to healthcare remains extremely poor in many areas. MSF’s presence is significantly constrained despite the immense needs. The Syrian government has not granted MSF authorisation to operate in the country, and our presence in areas outside government control is limited by insecurity.

In areas where access could be negotiated, we run or support hospitals and health centres and provid healthcare in displacement camps. In areas where no direct presence is possible, we maintain a system of distance support, consisting of donations of medicines, medical equipment and relief items; remote training of medical staff; technical medical advice and financial assistance to cover facilities’ running costs.

The governorate of Idlib currently hosts hundreds of thousands displaced Syrians. Many are living in informal camps that lack almost all services and are seriously overcrowded. MSF’s mobile clinics visit some of these camps on a weekly basis, to provide essential medical services such as vaccinations and primary healthcare consultations. We also conduct water and sanitation activities to improve the living conditions in the camps, and organise distributions of essential relief items.
