Nearly 60,000 displaced people are currently living in terrible conditions in M’Poko camp in Central African Republic. The already bad hygienic conditions are likely to get worse as the rainy season continues. MSF has set up a field hospital with 60 beds as well as three health posts to cover the medical needs and teams carry out 1,000 medical consultations per day, mainly for malaria, diarrhea, respiratory infections and skin disease linked to the sanitary conditions. Teams are trying to address the hygiene needs by building latrines and providing clean water.
