Responding to COVID-19 around the world

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams are responding to the coronavirus pandemic in more than 70 countries around the globe. We are treating sick patients, providing mental health support, training health workers in infection control measures, educating communities about how to slow the spread of the disease, and working with local health authorities to help them prepare for the impact of COVID-19. We're supporting the most vulnerable people, such as the elderly, homeless, and refugees. “As the virus knows no borders, the collective reaction to this pandemic must also be managed without borders,” says Dr. Christos Christou, MSF International President.
