The situation of the thousands of people displaced by the violence in north-east Nigeria, especially women and girls, is extremely difficult. Working in cooperation with the Ministry of Health, the International Committee of the Red Cross is caring for them and people wounded by weapons who need emergency surgery. The pictures in this gallery show some of the work being done at Maiduguri State Specialist Hospital, one of the facilities treating people who have fled violence elsewhere in north-east Nigeria.
