GREECE: THREE YEARS ON, EU-TURKEY DEAL CONTINUES CYCLE OF CONTAINMENT AND DESPAIR

Today, on the third anniversary of the signing of the EU-Turkey deal, international medical organisation Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) calls on European leaders to take action to end the harmful policy of containment on the Greek island ‘hotspots’, as well as to ensure the immediate evacuation of all vulnerable people, especially children, from these locations to suitable accommodation on the Greek mainland or in other EU Member States. For the past three years, the EU-Turkey deal has trapped thousands of men, women and children in overcrowded, unsanitary, unsafe and degrading conditions with little access to basic health services, which has resulted in a deterioration of their health and well-being and caused widespread misery, says MSF.
