WHO WE ARE
Médecins Sans Frontières MSF أطباء بلا حدود is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid in around 70 countries all over the world to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare. MSF offers assistance to people based on need, irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.
OUR ACTIONS ARE GUIDED BY MEDICAL ETHICS AND THE PRINCIPLES OF NEUTRALITY AND IMPARTIALITY.
MSF was founded 1971. Its principles are described in the organisation's founding charter. It is a non-profit, independent organisation.
We conduct our own evaluations on the ground to determine people’s needs. More than 90 per cent of our overall funding comes from millions of private individuals, not governments.
MSF is neutral. We do not take sides in armed conflicts, we provide care on the basis of need, and we push for independent access to victims of conflict as required under international humanitarian law.
