MSF statement in response to false accusations against its work as posted on AmirNur website

- MSF strongly denies the accusations against its work in Somaliland as posted on the AmirNur website. The hospitals operated by MSF in Somaliland and in Somalia have a long history of reducing maternal and infant mortality in the communities and retain strong and widespread community support due in part to our medical expertise and the culturally appropriate delivery of such health services.

In the first six months of 2012, MSF medical teams have assisted 2,340 deliveries and performed 700 surgeries, more than half for obstetrical cases in Burao (Burco) general hospital, the only public health facility in the Togdheer region. Since MSF started operating in Burao in January 2011, admissions have tripled and mortality rates have dropped in the maternity. Due to the very high numbers of patients, MSF is currently extending the maternity ward.

In Somaliland maternal mortality rates are 1,044 per 100,000– making it one of the worst countries in the world to give birth. Only one in five women has a skilled medic attend during labour. In 2011, MSF provided care to more than 4,000 children under five, assisted more than 2,700 births and carried out 671 surgical procedures in Somaliland. MSF handed over its projects in Hargeisa (2011) and Ceerigabo (2012) to the Ministry of Health
