This study was carried out in order to critically appraise the impact of the MSF-CH health care program on a local society in chronic conflict. The overall aim of this study was to understand critical issues in the implementation of the program, and to draw lessons for the future program planning in Marial Lou as well as for similar interventions elsewhere. The main results of this study give indications on changes in health status and health perception and show multiple unintended impacts of an intervention in an area where there was previously little else existing apart from people’s traditional means to survive.
