Measles vaccination and malnutrition

Over the past few weeks, thousands have fled drought-affected areas to come to Mogadishu, Somalia.

Here, MSF teams are battling a deadly combination of measles and acute malnutrition among the children living in camps.

To prevent measles spreading even further, MSF teams have rushed to vaccinate more than 30,000 children over the past few weeks.
