Medici fara frontiere / Medecins Sans Frontieres
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organisation founded by doctors and journalists in France in 1971. It provides independent, impartial assistance to people who are affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters or exclusion from healthcare. In 1999, MSF received the Nobel Peace Prize. Today MSF is a worldwide movement; we work in more than 70 countries around the world.
MSF’s work is based on humanitarian principles. We are committed to bringing quality medical care to those most in need, regardless of their race, religion, gender or political affiliation. MSF operates independently of any political, military or religious agendas. At times, MSF may speak out publicly to bring a forgotten crisis to public attention, to alert the public to abuses occurring beyond the headlines, to criticise the inadequacies of aid systems, or to challenge the abuse of humanitarian aid for political interests.
In 2019, thanks to more than 39.000 locally hired staff and over 3.800 international professionals, more than 11 million patients were treated in MSF projects around the world!

In addition to professional skills, the qualities needed to work with MSF include: being a good team player; being interested in other cultures; and being respectful of other people. It is also important to be flexible, as the context and working environment vary in each project and may be very different from what you are used to.
As an MSF staff member, you could find yourself working in a well-equipped hospital in a big city, in an improvised office set up in a tent in a refugee camp, or in a small health post in a remote and marginalised rural area.
