In Nigeria, MSF support people who have been displaced or affected by violence. We are also responding to multiple health challenges, such as severe malnutrition and recurring epidemics.

People’s lives in Nigeria have been disrupted by violence and crime, while regular disease outbreaks continue to endanger the lives of thousands of children.  

MSF has been responding to disease outbreaks and emergency health needs in Nigeria for many years, focusing on maternal and paediatric healthcare throughout the country. Since mid-2021, we have scaled up our nutritional activities in the Northwest, as a growing yet largely ignored malnutrition crisis is pushing people to the limits.
