Missione Italia

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has started its activities in Italy in 1999 when realized that the same persons cured and assisted in countries at thousands of kilometers of distance were the same encountered in precarious conditions and needs once in Italy. The activities developed during these last years have aimed to give medical and psychological assistance to migrant people, even undocumented, present in Italy.

Currently MSF Italy Mission implements different projects:

• In Rome, a rehabilitation center for victims of torture (VOT);
• In Catania, MSF is opening a post-acute care center for migrants;
• In Trapani, psycho social support and transcultural psychotherapy for asylum seekers;
• In Italy, psychological first aid (PFA) for traumatic boat landings;
