The 2024-2025 District Project, as selected by members of the New York District, is….Doctors Without Borders!

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) was founded in 1971 in France by a group of doctors and journalists aiming to establish an independent organization that focused on delivering emergency medical humanitarian aid quickly, effectively, and impartially.

Three hundred volunteers made up the organization when it was founded, including doctors, nurses, logistics experts, and other staff, including the 13 founding members. Doctors Without Borders was established on the belief that all people should have access to high quality health care, regardless of gender, race, religion, creed, or political affiliation.

Over the past five decades, Doctors Without Borders has grown from a group of a few hundred volunteers to an international movement of more than 68,000 staff providing over 16 million medical consultations in more than 70 countries every year. But the core values of humanitarianism, independence, neutrality, and impartiality that brought those original members together in 1971 continue to drive our work.

Founded in New York City in 1948, the Arthritis Foundation is a nonprofit organization addressing the needs of people living with arthritis in the United States.

The Arthritis Foundation works to provide information and resources, improve access to care, make advancements in scientific research and offer opportunities for community connections. Nationally and through local offices nationwide, the Arthritis Foundation sponsors a variety of year-round events to raise funds and awareness, from local walks and runs to dinners, galas and other fundraisers.

The Arthritis Foundation is a major partner of the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA) to improve health outcomes of children with juvenile arthritis and other pediatric rheumatic diseases. The Foundation has partnered with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to accelerate drug development for osteoarthritis, as well as partnered with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on advancements for other types of arthritis.
