Despite security challenges, MSF take the risk to treat underserved children in Borno State

Despite security challenges, MSF take the risk to treat underserved children in Borno StateDusuman is a community outside Maiduguri, the capital of northeast Nigeria’s Borno state. Nearby is the neighbourhood of Zabarmari, where dozens of rice farmers were beheaded in November 2020 – a brutal act for which the group commonly known as Boko Haram took responsibility. The Nigerian military is struggling to retake control of the territory within Borno state as a whole, but many areas, such as Dusuman, remain very insecure. This makes it difficult, if not impossible, to provide people with humanitarian assistance and medical care.

People in these locations have very limited access to medical […]
