Speakers Bureau

MSF regularly sends speakers to give presentations to medical, academic, and community groups throughout the United States. Each year, more than 100 MSF aid workers participate in these events. View a list of upcoming events.

How to Request a Speaker

To request a speaker for your event, use our Speaker Request Form below.

Due to an increased interest in MSF's activities in recent years and a limited number of aid workers available to participate in speaking events, more requests are made for speakers than can be fulfilled. Please review the following guidelines before requesting a speaker.

MSF encourages requests from the following:

  • National and regional conferences focusing on international medical and humanitarian concerns
  • Medical, public health, and international affairs schools and institutions
  • University and community groups interested in international medical and humanitarian concerns

In order to provide sufficient time to search for an appropriate speaker, please submit your request 6-8 weeks prior to the date of the event.
