Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an independent medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, natural disasters, and exclusion from health care. We provided humanitarian assistance in 71 countries in 2016.
On any given day, thousands of individuals, representing dozens of nationalities, assist people caught in crises around the world. They are doctors, nurses, logistics experts, administrators, epidemiologists, laboratory technicians, mental health professionals, and others whose work is guided by humanitarian principles and medical ethics.
MSF received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999.
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) presents a series of portraits of people forced from home, in search of safety. Many of these displaced people bear physical and psychological wounds from the dangerous journey, and are exposed to additional threats as countries close their borders and deny them protection.Learn More
