All around the world.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) cares for people affected by conflict, disease outbreaks, natural and human-made disasters, and exclusion from health care in more than 70 countries.

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, established on the belief that all people should have access to high quality health care, regardless of gender, race, religion, creed, or political affiliation.

    MSF teams treat a wide range of medical issues, from disease outbreaks to malnutrition to war wounds. And they put our decades of experience to work to produce groundbreaking medical research.

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