The 2016 International General Assembly took place from Friday 24 June to Sunday 26 June in Athens, Greece.

The International General Assembly (IGA) is the highest governance body within MSF. It safeguards our medical humanitarian mission and provides general and strategic orientations across the movement. The assembly is composed of two representatives from each MSF association and the MSF International President. Each representative has a single independent vote.

The IGA meets once a year, but may also meet more frequently in exceptional circumstances. Its formal powers include the endorsement of a vision guiding the implementation of MSF’s work and the provision of oversight and accountability across the movement. The IGA is also a forum for debating the current key issues and challenges faced by MSF.
