Doctors Without Borders

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) works in conflict zones, after natural disasters, during epidemics, in long-term care settings, and more.

Our teams provide medical care for millions of patients every year in many different types of projects.

MSF often hits the headlines when an emergency dominates the news, such as an earthquake, tsunami, or war. But we are constantly responding to urgent humanitarian needs, from disaster response to longer-term medical programs.

Emergency response

We can respond to emergencies extremely quickly. When a devastating earthquake hit Haiti in 2010 our teams treated the first casualty within minutes.

We already had staff in the country and they immediately helped victims of the disaster, despite damage to all of our medical facilities, as we geared up for a full emergency response.

Even if we are not active in a country we can deploy within hours. MSF has developed pre-packaged disaster kits, including a complete surgical theater, an obstetrics kit, and an inflatable hospital. These kits are now used as models by emergency relief organizations worldwide.
