ROHINGYA IN BANGLADESH: LIVES ON HOLD

MSFALB4838

One year since the biggest ever influx of Rohingya refugees into Bangladesh, the denial of legal status, coupled with unacceptable living conditions, continues to trap refugees in a cycle of suffering and poor health.

There are now over 919,000 Rohingya hosted in Cox’s Bazar district. MSF is one of the largest medical humanitarian actors in the response, and has treated over 656,200 patients, equivalent to over two-thirds the Rohingya refugee population, across its 19 health facilities or mobile clinics.

With no political solution in sight, the fate of the Rohingyas remains very uncertain. One year on, the camps remain massively overcrowded, with Rohingya refugees sometimes living in conditions one-tenth the established minimum humanitarians standard. Host states in the region (such as Bangladesh or Malaysia) deny them any formal legal status, despite the fact that they are refugees and have been rendered stateless. This keeps the refugees in a state of acute vulnerability.
