Annual reports

This report provides an overview of Médecins Sans Frontières Australia's activities along with its financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2016.

Annual reports

Almost one-third of our projects in 2016 were dedicated to providing assistance to populations caught in wars, such as in Yemen, South Sudan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria and Syria. We also provided assistance to people on the move, fleeing repression, poverty or violence, exploitation or danger as countries closed options for safe and legal routes. Our teams responded to other emergencies caused by epidemics and natural disasters and provided care and improved treatment for patients with diseases such as tuberculosis and HIV.

Annual reports

In 2015, attacks on medical facilities deprived entire communities of access to healthcare, conflict forced millions to flee their homes, and outbreaks of measles, meningitis and cholera continued to threaten populations.
