MSF asked to discontinue operation in Bajaur
November 10, 2017

KHAR, 10 November: The Doctors Without Borders or the Medecins Sans Frontiers (MSF), an international relief organization, has been asked to discontinue its operation in Nawagai area of Bajuar tribal agency, sources privy to the development said here on Friday.

According to MSF officials, they have been informed by the government authorities that the “No Objection Certificate” granted earlier to them, would no more be extended. The officials added that no reason had been cited for non renewal of the NOC.

The MSF has been running a hospital in Nawagai area of Bajuar agency where free of cost medical facilities were being provided to the local tribesmen. The officials feared that with the closure of the hospital, the local residents as well as tribesmen from the adjacent Mohmand agency would be deprived from medical facilities since it was the only health unit in the area.

The MSF administration has informed the local tribesmen and the hospital staff, saying, the project would be wrapped up in a fortnight.

The local tribesmen have expressed resentment over the government’s move and said instead of providing more health facilities to the militacy-affected tribesmen, the government is closing the existing health units.

The tribesmen demanded of the government to allow MSF to continue its operation in the area so that the local people could be benefited.
