Faire de charge viral un suivi de routine
Based on a survey performed across ten MSF supported ART sites and seven viral load testing laboratories in February 2016, “Making viral load routine” aims to share practical lessons from the field with Ministries of Health and implementing partners.

Mexico: Forced to flee Central America’s northern triangle

Changes in medical practice in Syria
Over what has now been nearly six years of war, Syrians have suffered immeasurably. Amidst the brutality of the Syrian conflict, violence against medical facilities, staff and patients has become horrifyingly routine. In 2016 alone, 81 medical facilities have been damaged or destroyed in Azaz and Aleppo districts, some repeatedly. This follows 94 attacks on MSF-supported facilities in 2015, which killed 81 healthcare staff.
