Video: What is Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)?

Every day, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams deliver emergency medical aid to people in crisis, with over 63,000 staff working in more than 70 countries around the world. Our teams of doctors, nurses, logisticians, and other frontline workers are often among the first on the scene when peoples’ lives are upended by conflict, disease outbreaks, or natural or human-made disasters. We respond based solely on medical needs, and we strive to be as open and transparent as possible when it comes to the work we do and the money we spend. Our financial independence ensures that the aid we provide is not used to further any government’s political or military goals.
