Doctors Without Borders (MSF) releases a new report showing the hardships of migrants in Libyan detention centres

The system of migrant detention centres in Libya do not provide humane conditions to migrants, according to a new report from Doctors Without Borders (MSF). In these facilities, people are often malnourished and exposed to violence. Moreover, pregnant women in the centres have to give birth without any medical assistance. Each month medical teams provide around 100 medical consultations and make around a dozen referrals to secondary and tertiary healthcare facilities so that detainees in need can receive further medical assistance.

A new UN study finds a correlation between irregular migration in Central America and prolonged droughts in the region

The UN has released a new study that finds a causal relation between long lasting droughts in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras and the increase in irregular migration from these countries to the United States. This research shows that younger and more vulnerable people are more prone to leave food-insecure areas – especially in the Dry Corridor, a drought-prone area that crosses these countries. Indeed, guaranteeing enough food supplies for themselves is one of the aims of most families.
