    Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)

    Doctors Without Borders provides lifesaving medical care to the people who need it most. They work in more than 70 countries, including many places where others can’t or won’t go, and deliver free health services to people no matter their race, ethnicity, religion, or politics.

    When an emergency hits, Doctors Without Borders teams are often among the first on the ground. That’s because they’re independently funded, meaning they take no government funding and don’t have to wait for grants or raise earmarked funds. When a crisis strikes, they can assess the needs and start caring for people. Over 90 percent of their program staff are locally hired. This ensures that they can respond quickly in emergencies and stay connected to communities.

    Doctors Without Borders responds to natural disasters like droughts, floods, and earthquakes and human-made disasters linked to the climate emergency. They treat people caught in conflict or forced to flee extreme violence; provide mental health care to people recovering from trauma; and care for communities during disease outbreaks, vaccinating people to protect them.

    Doctors Without Borders speaks out about the suffering they see and the causes of emergencies, and break down barriers preventing people from getting the care they need.
