Facing an Epidemic of Urban Violence in Honduras

At first glance, the streets of Tegucigalpa seem calm. However, Honduras's homicide rate is the highest in the world. This frightening statistic is largely due to drug trafficking. Most of the cocaine consumed in the United States is transported through this region. Gangs involved in the drug trade extort businesses, terrorize the population, and engage in vicious turf wars.

MSF is providing assistance to vulnerable populations who face extreme levels of violence and lack access to health care.
