Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders)
Our medical teams act fast to save people’s lies in conflict zones, natural disasters and epidemics. We go where we are needed most.
At the core of our identity is a commitment to independence, neutrality and impartiality. We raise awareness and create debate about crises through our policy of ‘témoignage’, or bearing witness.
Emergencies are messy, complex and chaotic. People’s lives are threatened, families shattered and the future is uncertain. The needs are often huge.
Our teams are often the first on the scene; during the early months of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, in many areas our teams provided the only medical care, and MSF was the leading voice demanding the world’s attention.
Our focus is emergency response. But emergencies don’t always happen suddenly or hit the headlines. We have worked in some countries – such as Myanmar and Sudan – for more than 30 years, helping generations access healthcare.
