The authorities of the so-called DPR withdrawn the accreditation of an independent international organization Doctors without Borders (MSF) in their territory. This is stated on the website of the organization, reports Joinfo.ua.
In a notification letter to the members of the MSF, the so-called DPR authority without explanation asked urgently to stop working in the occupied territory.
“We are almost the only organization providing treatment for tuberculosis in prisons, insulin for diabetic patients, and hemodialysis products to treat kidney failure,” said Janssens. “With the termination of our activities from one day to the next, thousands of patients suffering from chronic, potentially fatal diseases will now be left with little or no assistance.”
“Any interruption of treatment of patients with drug-resistant TB is known to reduce dramatically the prospects of cure, even if they restart treatment laterl” – said Janssens. “If these treatments are interrupted, this will lead to a major risk to public health.”
“As a medical organization we ethically cannot accept being forced to abandon our patients,” said Janssens. “The decision must be reviewed so crucial health care can once more be provided to those in need.”
In LPR the presence of Doctors without Bordersis also under threat, since the self-proclaimed leaders of “republic” began revisions of their activity.
