Early 2011, an MSF assessment team made contact with medical organisations in the country. The team visited Salmaniya hospital, in the capital Manama, several times and offered support. At a later date, training was provided to the hospital on mass casualty management of the emergency room.
Following the escalation in violence, the MSF team has been treating patients at their homes. Negotiations are ongoing with the Bahraini authorities to allow MSF staff to accompany injured protestors to health facilities.
