Like a lot of our staff, when I tell people that I work with Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)—and that I’ve worked in field missions in Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Syria, and elsewhere—they want to know more. What is it like to work “over there”? Where does the organization get its money? Do you take people who don’t have medical backgrounds? When do you open and close programs? How do you manage the security of your teams?
MSF-USA's quarterly newsletter features reports direct from the field and stories that chronicle our medical and advocacy work.
