SUDAN: MSF suspends delivery of vital care in Khartoum’s Turkish hospital after more than a year of violent incidents at the facility

Nairobi, Wednesday 10 July – After over a year of violent incidents both inside and outside the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)-supported Turkish Hospital in Khartoum – including threats made against the lives of MSF staff – MSF has taken the decision to evacuate its team from the hospital. This decision has not been taken lightly. MSF had managed to provide continuous hands-on, life-saving treatment in the facility for almost 14 months, despite many, often deliberate, obstructions from the warring parties. However, as a result of recent events, this hands-on support is now no longer possible.
