Extreme violences: MSF experience in Rwanda

In August 2017 in Rwanda, the presidential election resulted, unsurprisingly, in a “landslide victory” for the Rwandan Patriotic Front candidate, Paul Kagame, who secured 98.79% of the votes cast. No one in Rwanda however, delighted or disappointed with the result, supporter or opponent of Kagame, has forgotten the mass crimes that were committed during the conflict that spanned the 1990s, and particularly the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda. Several texts by members and associates of the CRASH published between 1994 and 2017 are united in this dossier.

Immunization: a new perspective on vaccines - Conference with Lise Barnéoud

2017-12-05 17:00:00 2017-12-05 19:00:00 Europe/Paris Immunization: a new perspective on vaccines - Conference with Lise Barnéoud MSF-Crash is organizing a conference/debate on immunization with Lise Barnéoud, science journalist and author of Immunisés ? Un nouveau regard sur les vaccins. Who benefits from immunization? Individuals ? Society ? Companies ? Is it effective? Dangerous? Cost effective? What are the factors influencing public perception in relation to vaccines ? Lise Barnéoud engages an investigation work aiming at revealing the various and sometimes contradictory realities observed in the field of vaccination in France. She leads her investigation from a triple point of view: that of a mother who must decide whether or not to vaccinate her children; that of a journalist who conducts an investigation and that of a scientist who analyses how the facts are constructed. Through an exchange with Epicentre, the Crash and MSF medical department, we will discuss the politics of vaccination, still a very important part of our operations, and a subject of recurring discussions and controversies at MSF too. The conference will be on 5 December, from 6pm to 8pm, at Médecins Sans Frontières headquarters. It will be streaming and will be simultaneously translated in English.   Médecins Sans Frontières 8 rue saint sabin 75011 Paris France MSF CRASH
