Emergency medical care where it’s needed most

Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is designed to act fast – we have a network of medics and aid experts across more than 70 countries.  

Our private funding means we can rapidly get to work helping the people in greatest need, without waiting for governments or other institutions to release funds. For us, people come first. 

But our work delivering life-saving medical care in over 70 countries has never been more difficult.  

Our supplies and staff are stretched by the coronavirus pandemic.

Amid the chaos caused by COVID-19, babies are still being born. Children are still catching preventable diseases. And conflict is still causing life-threatening injuries.  

We’ve continued to care for people living through some of the worst health crises in the world today, by adapting to the dangers caused by the virus.
