MSF- Month in Focus March 2012

Our Month in Focus videos give you a chance to visit some of MSF’s projects around the world.

On International Women?s Day, MSF raises the alert on the number of preventable deaths during pregnancy. We visit Dadaab refugee camp where hundreds of thousands of Somali people depend on humanitarian aid. Worsening security is a problem.

In 2011, MSF treated 25,000 people with tuberculosis. As World TB Day approaches we highlight the cruel lack of new diagnostic tools and medicines.

We travel with MSF?s mobile sickness team to remote parts of central Africa and meet the tetse fly, the carrier of the disease.

And finally we join protesters in New York, campaigning to stop drug company Novartis? attack on Indian drug patent law, which would have disastrous consequences for affordable medicine. SUBSCRIBE HERE:
