MSF is an independent, nongovernment organization. We will frequently prepare reports, medical surveys, and personal testimonies to present to the UN and the US government as part of our advocacy strategy to “bear witness” and “speak out.” And we do coordinate our activities with the UN to make sure other government and nongovernment services are also being provided and in order to avoid duplication of services. But we do not take funding from either the US or the UN, we do not partner with them in our field operations,and MSF is not part of the UN “cluster system.”
