New graphic for Doctors Without Borders for the upcoming AIDS conference (IAS 2013) in Malaysia. I’m always fascinated and encouraged by the work Doctors Without Borders is doing as far as AIDS treatment coverage is concerned. It’s always an honor to work with them!

A graphic I made with MSF Bruxelles in hopes of getting the word out about the situation of THOUSANDS of Sudanese Refugees.

Reblog to help us raise awareness of the plight of Sudanese refugees living in appalling conditions in camps in South Sudan. They are falling ill and dying at rates alarmingly above accepted international standards for emergencies.
Join us next week for a live webcast discussion on the refugee crisis in South Sudan, featuring recently returned emergency field staff. Wednesday, August 29, 8p ET. Register here.

Here’s a quick image I helped make with MSF to explain a bit more about the situation in South Sudan. Please check out the link below.

Water has already run out in one of the temporary gathering places for around 30,000 newly arrived refugees in South Sudan. The new refugees are sleeping under trees, with no shelter, and virtually no food. Read this first-hand account from our team leader in South Sudan.

Here is an infographic I made with Doctors Without Borders Amsterdam:

Over the past three years, MSF teams have witnessed a rather astonishing rise in the number of malaria cases in Democratic Republic of Congo. For its part, MSF is now responding to outbreaks in six separate provinces in the east and north of the country, but a wider, more concerted effort is urgently needed to battle this potentially fatal disease that traditionally afflicts the young and the infirm.

The Avoidable Crisis of Maternal DeathMSF makes it a priority to provide lifesaving, emergency obstetric care in both acute and chronic humanitarian crises. MSF teams strive to address the five main causes of maternal death: hemorrhage, sepsis, unsafe abortion, hypertensive disorders, and obstructed labour. In a conflict or crisis, pregnant women are even more vulnerable because health services have collapsed, are inadequate, or are totally non-existent. But these women need access to quality emergency obstetric care whether they live in a conflict zone, in a refugee camp, or under plastic sheeting after a devastating earthquake. In fact, they need the same help that all pregnant women facing a complication need: access to appropriate medical assistance—skilled medical staff, drugs, and equipment—to save their life and the life of their baby. Conflict, epidemics, natural disasters, or the complete breakdown of a country’s health system are crises faced by MSF’s millions of patients around the world every day. But a maternal death: that’s the avoidable crisis.
