MSF UK/IE has a zero-tolerance response to abuse, maltreatment and/or neglect of any kind and is committed to safeguarding, protection and fulfilling our duty of care to our patients and the individuals and communities we serve, people working and volunteering in the organisation, and to those that MSF otherwise comes into contact with.

In line with the MSF Movement ‘Chantilly Principles’ ‘Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) was founded to contribute to the protection of life and alleviation of suffering out of respect for human dignity.’ At MSF UK/IE we believe that safeguarding is a key pillar within our organisational work to deliver on this principle and to prevent, protect and respond to suffering or harm for those working with or are supported by the organisation.

MSF UK/IE is committed to adhering to our Safeguarding Policy and all representatives are expected to behave in line with the organisational Code of Conduct. If you think this is not the case, or have witnessed behaviour or actions which cause any intentional or unintentional harm to anyone, please speak to us as soon as possible.
