Demographics in Bosnia, February 2022
The one doctor, one nurse team in Bosnia saw 241 patients in February. During the cold weather, there are fewer people on the “game”, the term used amongst those on the move for the act of crossing the border. There were more people staying in camps throughout Bosnia but particularly in Sarajevo. With the warmer weather coming in March/ April, we expect to see numbers rising but not to the extent of previous years due to routes that the people on the move (POMs) take changing toward Serbia and Romania. However, there are still people in need in Velika Kladusa, Bosnia with living conditions in squats contributing to health conditions and injuries from pushback and endless cycles of going on the “game”. The team has been working hard to ensure that people receive the healthcare they desperately need.
