Medecins Sans Frontieres Spain
HEALTH PROMOTER IEC OFFICER – POOL – Deportees and Returnees Project at Medecins Sans Frontieres Spain
In July, we launched one of our biggest emergency interventions of 2018 worldwide around Gedeo, SNNP region (SNNPR), and Guji, Oromia region, after an escalation in ethnic violence that left hundreds of thousands of displaced people without basic services.
When our teams arrived, people were living in cramped conditions, sleeping on the ground in vacant buildings, and suffering from diarrhoea, intestinal parasites and respiratory tract infections. We supported several hospitals, health centres, health posts and mobile clinics until the end of the year, when the crisis eased and we handed activities over to the local authorities.
Between July and December, we conducted nearly 91,000 outpatient consultations, treated around 3,000 children for severe acute malnutrition, and vaccinated 103,800 under-15-year-olds against measles in a preventive vaccination campaign organised in collaboration with the Regional Health Bureau in Gedeo. MSF staff also provided mental health support, treated victims of sexual violence, distributed essential relief items and trucked in 69 million litres of clean water.
In October, we launched another emergency intervention to respond to the needs of people displaced by violence in East Wellega on the border between Benishangul-Gumuz and Oromia regions. Our teams focused on emergency healthcare, water and sanitation, and at the end of the year, expanded these operations to neighbouring West Wellega.
