This is the latest in a series of accountability reports produced by Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) about our global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The first report covered the period from March–May 2020, and the second report covered June–August, 2020. This third report covers the period from September–December 2020 and features an overview of our activities over the course of the year.

MSF has responded to this unprecedented global public health crisis in more than 300 projects in 70 countries. Our COVID-19 activities have focused on delivering medical care and other assistance to vulnerable groups—including remote communities, people on the move, people who are homeless, and elderly people living in long-term care facilities. MSF teams have worked alongside local health care workers to strengthen infection prevention and control measures, protect staff, and treat patients.
