Why MSF Had To Stop Offering Mental Health Care To Refugees In Nauru

A 12-year-old Iranian refugee girl, who had tried to set herself on fire with petrol, rests in a bed in Nauru, where nearly 1,000 refugees and asylum seekers have been sent by the government of Australia.

Doctors Without Borders spent 11 months treating asylum seekers and refugees as well as locals. In early October, the government of the tiny island nation told them to shut down their operation.
