Although it was not their first assignment with #MSF, working as a part of MSF’s emergency response to the deadly #cholera outbreak in #Yemen was unlike anything they had experienced before.
In this article, Ajoy, Shiny, and Ankur share how they fought one of the worst outbreaks globally in recent memory. http://bit.ly/2Bdkm0y

This #WorldAIDSDay, let's talk about the people living in the shadows of stigma and the urgent need to make the treatment for HIV accessible for them.
HIV/AIDS is not a death sentence unless we make it one.

To respond to the medical needs of people affected by #sexualviolence, MSF inaugurated the 'Umeed Ki Kiran' clinic in November 2015. The clinic, located in the Jahangirpuri area of #Delhi, remains open 24X7, and provides all services in a friendly and confidential environment through a team of trained and qualified doctors, nurses and counsellors.
The services include treatment of injuries, prevention of HIV/AIDS, unwanted pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases and psychosocial support. MSF also raises awareness within the vulnerable communities on the importance of timely medical and psychological care through psycho education and outreach activities.

Dr Dhriti Shukla was working with #MSF, providing essential medical care to people living in hard-to-reach locations in #Chhattisgarh. This #ThrowbackThursday, she shares one of her cherished memories of her assignment with MSF.

“I got to witness what team effort truly is during my stint at MSF in Chhattisgarh. We were on our way to one of our mobile clinic sites, when we noticed that torrential rains had damaged the bridge that we used to cross to reach the clinic site.
We had two choices: either return to the base or stay back and try to repair the bridge. The entire team, which included the team leader, drivers, lab technicians, nurses, registrars, health educators and I, got to work, carrying heavy stones and levelling the bridge manually so that the cars could cross through. The passersby saw us toiling away and decided to help us in our endeavour. After an hour of backbreaking work, our cars were able to cross the bridge.
The people who gathered around cheered us on real hard. Here we were, the entire team, covered in dirt, soaking wet, but with a sense of pride. We did the impossible. We made a difference. And I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of such a wonderful team. “

" Pfizer does not deserve the patent it was granted in August on its #pneumonia vaccine PCV13."
The Indian patent office's decision to give Pfizer a monopoly on their pneumonia vaccine until 2026 could deprive countless children of the opportunity to be protected against pneumonia. Rohit Malpani, director of Policy and Analysis at MSF Access Campaign discusses how on Al Jazeera English.

"At MSF, we have watched far too many children die of pneumonia, and we’re not going to back down until the price is no longer a barrier."

Every day, pneumonia kills 2,500 kids. At Delhi High Court hearing tomorrow, we will urge India to remain the “pharmacy of the developing world” and rethink the decision that solidifies Pfizer's monopoly on critical #pneumonia vaccine. http://bit.ly/2zQUFER
