It’s easy to write inspiring words that define an organization’s mission. It’s much harder to put those principles into practice. Since its founding in 1971, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has operated with a fierce—and challenging—commitment to independence, impartiality, and neutrality.
These principles are what make it possible for us to respond rapidly to emergencies and provide lifesaving medical care in situations where many other organizations can’t or won’t. The impact and efficacy of our ability to put these principles into practice was recognized in 1999 when MSF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Where We Serve
MSF operates in over 70 countries around the world.
As medical first responders, our teams of over 42,000 doctors, nurses, and logisticians are often the first on the scene—sometimes arriving in a matter of minutes to respond to the needs of people whose lives have been upended by emergency and crisis.
