Today marks the first anniversary of the outbreak of #Ebola in #Guinea, the first country affected in the #epidemic. Over the past year, more than 1,300 #MSF international staff and 4,000 local staff have been deployed in #WestAfrica, where they cared for nearly 5,000 confirmed Ebola #patients. “The Ebola outbreak has often been described as a perfect storm: a cross-border epidemic in countries with weak public health systems that had never seen Ebola before,” says Christopher Stokes, MSF general director. “Yet this is too convenient an explanation. For the Ebola outbreak to spiral this far out of control required many institutions to fail. And they did, with tragic and avoidable consequences.” A report released today, 'Pushed to the limits and beyond', describes MSF’s early warnings one year ago about cases of Ebola spreading in Guinea, the initial denial by governments of the affected countries, and the unprecedented steps that MSF was forced to take in the face of global inaction as the outbreak engulfed neighbouring states.

#tomorrowneedsher 750 #women are affected by obstetric #fistula in #Burundi each year. These are injuries of the birth canal and most often the result of prolonged, obstructed labour. They cause incontinence, which often leads to social #stigma. #MSF has opened a specific centre for the treatment of these women. We also aim to raise awareness of the condition within the country through medical staff training and a helpline. Of the estimated 30,000 to 130,000 women who develop a new fistula every year, only a fraction of them have access to surgery. #IWD #IWD2015 ©Matteo Bianchi Fasani, 2014

#tomorrowneedsher Yvonne Baradahana, 49, sustained an obstetric #fistula in 1991 while giving birth at home. She managed to deliver three children despite this. Her third birth was at a hospital, and the doctor said they could not repair her fistula because it had occurred so long ago. She heard #MSF was coming to her district and was treating women with her condition. After a consultation, the team offered fistula repair surgery. Successful fistula repair can mean a second chance at life for many women. “I’m really happy because the sickness I went to get treated for is healed”, says Yvonne. #IWD #IWD2015 ©Martina Bacigalupo/VU, 2015

#tomorrowneedsher Irina Vasiliena, a mother of two, was living on the frontline of conflict in #Ukraine where there was constant shelling. “We left our house because of the bombings; the roof had been damaged and we had spent the last week living in the basement. The children were afraid to go upstairs, and if they played outside during the day then they didn't want to come back inside the house at night. When we first arrived here the children were still afraid of loud, unexpected noises but now they feel safe and they are calmer."#MSF is supporting a number of hospitals in Ukraine, helping to treat others like Irina who have been forcefully displaced from their homes. #IWD #IWD2015 © Joffrey Monnier/MSF, 2015.

"The people of Syria are being denied the most fundamental assistance and the world cannot continue to look away. We can and must do more for them," said #MSF International #President Joanne Liu today. As the #war in #Syria enters its fifth year, desperately-needed aid is failing to reach millions of people who are trapped by the #conflict, and a massive increase in medical assistance is required. In this photo, a man carries a young #girl away from a #missile #blast site in the city of #Aleppo in February 2013. Visit msf.org.uk to find out more. © Thomas Rassloff/EPA

#tomorrowneedsher In 2012, 6.6 million children under five years old died. More than 2.9 million of these children died within 28 days of birth. #MSF offers reproductive care in 159 projects around the world in an effort to increase access to #maternal care in developing countries, and to decrease the number of children who die from #malnutrition and other complications. Here, a grandmother and her grandson wait in the Intensive Therapeutic Feeding Centreer (ITFC) of #Boost Hospital in #Afghanistan. Children facing #malnutrition and medical complications are admitted to the centre for an intensive treatment with therapeutic milk. #becausetomorrowneedsher, #IWD #IWD2015 ©Paula Bronstein/Getty Reportage.

#tomorrowneedsher A young mother from #Tegucigalpa, #Honduras, holds her three-month-old baby. In Honduras, many people do not receive healthcare because it is difficult to access, or simply because they are not aware of its existence. Creating awareness about the importance of health services is one of the main objectives of #MSF in Tegucigalpa. This mother was approached by MSF teams who identified the importance of post-natal follow up for her new baby. She had never received pre-natal care for her previous pregnancies. #becausetomorrowneedsher #IWD #IWD2015 © Edu Ponces/RUIDO Photo, 2014.

Every day, 800 #women die from pregnancy-related causes. Every day, 700 children come into this world with #HIV. There are challenges keeping women in developing countries from getting the care they need and the services that should be easily accessible to them. It is urgent that they be addressed – and we have seen from our own work that it can be done. Today is International Women’s Day (#IWD / #IWD2015) and we have launched a campaign, called ‘Because Tomorrow Needs Her', to explore the most pressing issues facing women around the world. Over the coming days we will delve into the stories of the women featured in this image, such as Yvonne, a #mother from #Burundi with obstetric fistula, and Jennipher, an HIV-positive mother of four from #Malawi. Check back throughout the week and look for the #tomorrowneedsher hashtag. Or, visit womenshealth.msf.org.
