Doctors Without Borders Leaves Somalia

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Humanitarian aid group Doctors Without Borders announced earlier this month that it will withdraw from operations in Somalia. And last week, it revealed that medical centers were flooded with patients showing signs of exposure to toxic nerve agents around the time of the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria. Sophie Delaunay, Executive Director of Doctors Without Borders in the United States, talks about these recent developments, as well as the challenges and ethics of providing medical care in war-torn countries.
