In April 2018, MSF opened a post-operative care hospital in this city, to provide services for people injured by violent or accidental trauma during the recent conflict. Soon after the activities started, data showed that more than one out of three patients were affected by antibiotic resistance.

Today, the hospital is one of the only structures in the country providing them with optimized antimicrobial therapy.
