Join Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) for an in-depth look at how innovations introduced over the past 40 years have improved the organization's medical humanitarian work.

Learn how changes to drug regimens improved malaria treatment, how creative staffing solutions allowed MSF to treat more people living with HIV/AIDS, how ready-to-use-foods and new treatment models revolutionized the fight against global malnutrition, and how medical innovations can address current and future challenges.

The live panel discussion will feature:

Dr. Jean-Herve Bradol, Director of Research at the MSF Center for Reflection on Humanitarian Knowledge and Action (CRASH), and editor of the recently published volume Medical Innovations in Humanitarian Situations: The Work of Médecins Sans Frontières.
