Mensagem do presidente internacional de #MSF, Dr. Christos Christou,
Segue 🧵
📣Imagens e histórias da guerra na Ucrânia são chocantes. O sofrimento dos civis nos lembra de padrões que testemunhamos trabalhando em zonas de conflito nos últimos 50 anos e, mais recentemente: na #Síria, no #Iraque, no #Iêmen, no #Afeganistão.
📣Esta guerra compartilha muitos dos mesmos elementos, incluindo sofrimento, tristeza e desespero.
Como em toda crise, nossos pensamentos estão com as pessoas. Nossas equipes de emergência estão trabalhando incansavelmente para tentar levar atendimento a quem mais precisa.

🇸🇾No noroeste da #Síria , há uma grande necessidade de serviços de saúde sexual e reprodutiva. As necessidades humanitárias e de saúde estão crescendo enquanto o frágil sistema de saúde continua a enfrentar desafios estruturais, e o financiamento continua a encolher ano após ano.
🛑Como o restante da população, as mulheres na #Síria são diretamente afetadas pelas más condições de vida e pela insegurança alimentar. Muitas lutam para ter acesso à saúde devido à insegurança, à distância até as instalações de saúde e ao custo dos serviços e/ou do transporte.
⚠️Ao longo de 2021, #MSF viu várias instalações e projetos de saúde reduzirem suas atividades ou fecharem após perderem seus fundos. Isto afetou a disponibilidade de serviços de saúde sexual e reprodutiva essenciais para meninas e adolescentes, gestantes e seus recém-nascidos.

Kate White, #MSF emergency coordinator: “We are horrified to hear reports that a hospital complex including a maternity ward in Mariupol was struck in an attack yesterday.” #Ukraine 1/6

“With active shelling, gunfights and aerial bombardment in Mariupol ongoing, seeking health care has become increasingly hard, especially so for expecting mothers and elderly people who are limited in their movements.” 3/6

Los centros sanitarios del país están sometidos a una gran presión por la falta de personal y equipos. Durante años, el sistema sanitario afgano ha dependido de la ayuda exterior. Si esta se detiene, podría entrar en un colapso total #Afganitán

elpais.com/internacional/…
#MSF continúa con sus actividades médicas en sus cinco proyectos en #Afganistán: Herat, Kandahar, Khost, Kunduz y Lashkar Gah. Tras el fin de los combates, la población se puede mover con más facilidad y ha habido un aumento de pacientes, especialmente en Herat y Lashkar Gah.
#Khost: Mercados, sistemas de transporte locales y muchas clínicas privadas no funcionan plenamente.
Algunas pacientes han dado a luz en casa durante la última semana porque no estaban seguras de que los centros de salud estuvieran abiertos.

1/ Following horrific killings of #MSF workers in #Tigray, UN SG could invoke Article 11 of UN Security Council Resolution 2286 on Health Care & Armed Conflict & call Council's attention to obstruction of medical assistance to populations in need: theguardian.com/global-develop…
2/UNSCR 2286 established a reporting architecture to ensure that the question of attacks on the medical mission will continue to receive regular attention by Security Council. The killings of #MSF staff demand UNSC's urgent attention. @MSF @UKUN_NewYork securitycouncilreport.org/atf/cf/%7B65BF…
3/ Statement by @NZUN made with Egypt, Japan, Spain, & Uruguay as co-drafters of UNSCR 2286 noting that it provides that "safe and unimpeded passage for medical personnel & their supplies to all people requiring assistance must not be compromised". @UNDPPA mfat.govt.nz/en/media-and-r…

Oggi è stata nuovamente negata a un nostro team l’autorizzazione a entrare da #Israele nella Striscia di #Gaza, nonostante i crescenti bisogni umanitari causati dal conflitto. Gli ospedali sono carenti di molti materiali per curare i feriti, a cominciare dalle sacche di sangue.
“Non sappiamo ancora quando la nostra équipe sarà in grado di entrare a #Gaza per unirsi ai nostri colleghi già sul posto" Ely Sok, capomissione #MSF nei Territori palestinesi
"Chiediamo che siano riaperti immediatamente i valichi di frontiera e che sia garantita una circolazione sicura di personale e forniture umanitarie per scongiurare una catastrofe ancora più grave" Ely Sok, capomissione #MSF nei Territori palestinesi

#GAZA - Ieri notte la nostra clinica è stata danneggiata da un #bombardamento aereo israeliano che ha colpito l’area circostante.
La clinica #MSF fornisce trattamenti per traumi e ustioni. Ora la stanza dedicata alla sterilizzazione è inutilizzabile, mentre la sala d’aspetto è completamente danneggiata. Non si contano feriti nella nostra clinica, ma alcune persone sono state uccise nei bombardamenti. #Gaza
“LA SITUAZIONE È TERRIFICANTE. Gli #attacchi aerei, ancora in corso, hanno causato molti danni intorno alla clinica e all’ufficio di MSF” Ayman Djaroucha, coordinatore #MSF a #Gaza

1/3: Who to trust in describing z #war in #Tigray #Ethiopia? Over and over again government propaganda has proven to be falsehoods. The deliberate disinformation seems to continue unabated. See how status of health facilities are described by the authorities, in contrast to #MSF:
2/3: Government claims that over 75% are functional: fanabc.com/english/ecc-sa…
3/3: While the reputed and independent international humanitarian agency #MSF reports that barely 1 in 10 is operational.
Who to trust....?

Gloria Rogel del Cid yJuan de Dios Tejada son las dos víctimas mortales de los disparos realizados desde un automóvil que bloqueó el paso de un camión donde se movilizaban activistas plenamente identificados.
El incidente lo atribuyen al "discurso de odio" del presidente Bukele.
El hecho se dió en medio de un "brote de violencia" que ha incluído un ataque a una ambulancia de la organización Médicos Sin Fronteras #MSF la madrugada del domingo en #Ilopango. La entidad asistencial anunció anoche la suspensión de sus operaciones en la nación centroamericana. Image

After making it through a shipwreck that claimed at least 45 lives, traumatised survivors are back to #Libya & the very same cycle of violence they tried to escape.

#MSF teams in #Libya have met with a dozen of them to provide medical care.  

bit.ly/32znQcf
They are distressed and suffer from first-degree burns.

Local fishermen were the only ones who stepped in to save those who could still be saved.

We have no information about what is currently happening to the other survivors.
They told us of a plane that flew over their heads four times during their ordeal at sea.

This could be yet another occurrence of an #EU aerial asset watching from above people in a desperate situation and condemning them to drown at sea, or be returned to #Libya.

1/12 #APEC media: Australia paid many $Billions to private companies #IHMS & #PIH to provide limited medical services to #Manus refugees for 5+ years. Nothing to upgrade Manus Island Lorengau Hospital that’s a run-down, little provincial hospital servicing an entire community.
2/12 When #Manus refugees need X-rays, scans, dental treatment, surgery, emergency services, in-patient or out-of-hours services, they are sent to #Lorengau Hospital. This strains the already overburdened island health service. #APEC has triggered a Manus health services crisis.
3/12 While 5 critically ill refugees remain, PIH hospital Port Moresby discharged all PNG patients & cancelled dozens of sick refugees’ treatment. PIH/Australia refugee contract conflicts with preferred #APEC provider role. Dozens of sick refugees were forced to return to #Manus.
