Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is one of the world's leading independent organisations for medical humanitarian aid, giving quality medical care to people caught in crisis regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation.
Every day, more than 27,000 MSF field staff provide assistance around the world to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care or natural disasters.
In 2010, MSF carried out over 7 million outpatient consultations and dealt with over 362,000 inpatients. MSF teams had 210,000 HIV/AIDS patients under care, vaccinated 5.8 million people against measles or meningitis, treated 194,000 people for measles or meningitis, and treated more than 369,000 malnourished children. There were 151,000 deliveries including caesarean sections, 188,000 patients with mental health needs received consultations and 58,000 major surgical interventions were carried out.
Formed in 1971, by a group of doctors and journalists aiming to establish an independent organisation focused on emergency medicine and speaking out about the cause of human suffering, MSF's work is based on the humanitarian principles of medical ethics and remains committed to bearing witness and speaking out.
