Doctors Without Borders

Doctors Without Borders (also internationally known as Médecins Sans Frontières or MSF) is a private, nonprofit organization that provides emergency aid to victims of armed conflict, epidemics and natural disasters, as well as to people who lack health care due to social or geographical isolation. MSF is an international program with branches in 18 countries. Each year, more than 3,000 volunteer doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals join 15,000 locally hired staff to provide medical aid in more than 90 countries.

MSF was founded in 1971 by a group of French doctors who believed that all people should have access to proper health care. It was the first non-governmental organization to both provide emergency medical assistance and publicly bear witness to the plight of the populations they served. To maintain this independence, MSF relies on the general public for the majority of its operating funds. Other financial support is provided by foundations, corporations, nonprofit organizations, international agencies, and the U.S. and other governments.
