Gender equality is a fundamental human right which MSF is committed to reflect in its operations both internally and externally.

We operate two fair and transparent pay grade systems for our UK/IE-based and international field staff that centres around skills, equal opportunities and performance.

In 2019, we reported a mean gender pay gap of -2.1 percent and a median gender pay gap of 1.6 percent.

Although we have achieved an excellent result, the mean gender pay gap is still not at zero.

The factors that have contributed to this have been identified and will guide us towards achieving the goal of completely closing a gender pay gap.

We will continue to review our internal policies and procedures; focusing on recruitment and staff retention in our endeavour to reach zero percent.

Please read our Gender Pay Gap Report 2019, or download our one-page summary, to find out more about how MSF UK and Ireland are committed closing to the pay gap for good.
