Tehran Ready to Help Doctors Without Borders

The deputy foreign minister for Arab and African affairs expressed Iran’s readiness to help Médecins Sans Frontières, also known as Doctors Without Borders.  
Hossein Amir Abdollahian made the remark in a meeting with MSF’s president in Tehran, in which the two sides discussed cooperation in medical fields to help the war-hit nations in the Middle East and Africa, ISNA reported on Sunday.  
The senior diplomat emphasized that the aid aims to help meet the needs of the war-affected people in Yemen, Syria, Iraq and African countries who do not have adequate access to health centers and are faced with shortage of medicines and medical devices.
According to the report, the Iranian Red Crescent Society and Iran’s Muslim Doctors Without Borders, as two organizations designated to enhance cooperation with MSF, are set to play more active role in helping the crisis-hit nations in Africa and the Middle East. MSF President Mego Terzian described in detail the humanitarian and medical measures taken in some conflict-hit countries in the region and called for sharing experience with Iranian specialists as well as assistance in other shapes. MSF is a French-founded humanitarian-aid non-governmental organization, best known for its projects in war-torn regions and developing countries facing endemic diseases.
 Its headquarters are in Geneva, Switzerland.
