Recent news and stories

Latest updates from the MSF movement about our work.

MSF’s social worker, Sandra, welcomes a patient at Notre-Dame de Caramel Reference Health Center in Goma, North Kivu. Many people living with HIV in Goma face socio-economic difficulties that prevent them from properly following their treatment despite the free medical care provided by MSF. Stigmatisation, social exclusion and poverty are all realities that can push some patients to stop taking their treatment. These challenges can also be acute for survivors of sexual violence, street children and sex workers, who are often particularly vulnerable and marginalised in DRC.
