2022: A review of medical humanitarian work in photos
Published: Dec 28, 2022Updated: May 2, 2023
In 2022, we saw the effects of climate change and conflict on a scale we haven’t seen before. From natural disasters to the war in Ukraine, we witnessed the population of displaced people and migrants grow at an unprecedented rate.
Our teams responded to various epidemics, from cholera to ebola. We cared for people suffering from malnutrition and malaria. We supported people who were subjected to sexual violence and rescued migrants traversing the dangerous Mediterranean Sea. We saw the consequences of the climate emergency and was given a front row seat to what the world was planning to do about it at COP27.
Throughout the year, MSF continued its 51st year of our work around the world. As we enter 2023, we want to reflect and highlight some of our main activities each month of the year.
This collection of images, taken between January to December 2022, was chosen from among an estimated 7,000, from among the 80 countries we work in. In these images, staff and professional photographers from around the world have captured just some of the stories of people and patients, and our work with them, bearing witness to an essential humanitarian need – access to medical care.
In 2023, we aim to continue our work while staying impartial, neutral and independent. Thank you for your support in 2022.
