MSF's publications are an expression of our belief in the principle of témoignage, or bearing witness, and the belief that we are accountable to those we work for and with. Sharing news about our activities and reflecting on them, offering critiques when necessary, are therefore crucial aspects of our work.

Malaria is one of the leading killers of young children worldwide, even though it is both preventable and easily cured. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) treated 2.5 million people for malaria in 2017.
