In Egypt, MSF provides healthcare services for migrants, asylum seekers and refugees subjected to violence.

The number of migrants arriving in Egypt has risen sharply in recent years due to conflict and instabilities in Syria, Iraq, Sudan, South Sudan, Eritrea, Somalia, Libya and several other countries.

Migrants are struggling with poor services integration, limited employment opportunities and difficulties in accessing healthcare due to diminishing funding.

Many migrants have been subjected to violence and exploitation in their home countries or during their journeys to Egypt and have psychological problems and physical disabilities.

We have developed individual rehabilitative treatment plans for these patients, consisting of medical and mental health assistance, physiotherapy and social support.

MSF IN EGYPT IN 2022 In Egypt, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) provides healthcare services for migrants, asylum seekers and refugees who have been subjected to violence.

Many migrants, asylum seekers and refugees in Egypt suffer the physical and psychological consequences of the violence and exploitation they have experienced in their home countries, during their journeys, or at their destination.

We run a clinic in the capital, Cairo, to respond to their specific needs. The facility offers a comprehensive package of care for victims of violence, including general healthcare, gynaecology, mental health support and psychosocial consultations, and specialist referrals when needed.

The programme also has a social component, linking patients to partner organisations for housing, food, orientation guidance, protection services and advice concerning other social issues. Our teams accompany patients through their recovery process and conduct awareness-raising and outreach activities among migrant communities.
