MSF providing health care to Syrian refugees in Turkey
Turkey hosts the largest refugee population in the world – over four million – of whom 3.5 million are Syrian.

In 2019, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) continued to provide support to a local organization, the Citizens’ Assembly, which works with migrants and refugees in Turkey. The Citizens’ Assembly Nefes Centre provides support and advisory services in Istanbul for migrants and refugees who have suffered ill-treatment. 

As well as providing technical and financial support to local NGOs, we are engaging in efforts to renew our registration to operate directly.

No. staff in 2019: 32 | Expenditure in 2019: €0.7 million | Year MSF first worked in the country: 1999
