A boy with asthma receives oxygen in the ER section of an MSF hospital in Syria. The dust had aggravated his asthma and he arrived unable to breathe. It was impossible for his parents to find an asthma inhaler in Syria. There are countless people affected by common health problems in Syria, pathologies that would be entirely manageable in normal settings but can quickly become deadly in the midst of a war, when the usual health care options are suddenly no longer available. Diabetes, hypertension, asthma, and maternal health complications are all taking their toll.
