Knock-on effect COVID_Caracas Venezuela

Venezuela

In Venezuela, political and economic crisis has left the country’s healthcare system in tatters, with many hospitals lacking even basic supplies.

Across the country, MSF teams rehabilitate hospitals and health posts, distributing medical supplies to facilities and patients, rebuilding water and sanitation systems, and training staff.

We also offer general healthcare – including vaccinations and sexual and reproductive services – to people in Anzoátegui state and in Caracas, the capital.

Between March and November 2020, we also responded to the COVID-19 pandemic, providing treatment to patients in Ana Francisca Pérez de León II hospital, in Caracas; following restrictions, we were forced to withdraw in November.
