Doctors without Borders Areas of Intervention, 2016

Source: Doctors without Borders, 


The international humanitarian medical NGO Médecins sans frontières (MSF – Doctors without Borders), created in 1971, is organized into 24 independent sections (mainly located in the Northern countries, Brazil, and South Africa) and ancillary offices, also in countries of the Northern hemisphere or emerging countries. The NGO deploys volunteers who help with fundraising (over 90% of funds are private, guaranteed to be independent of states). MSF conducts awareness-raising activities, as well as communicating with and assisting those suffering threats to their life and health (because of conflicts, epidemics, natural disasters, of exclusion from care). The deployment of personnel shows the geography of action in the field, which is particularly focused on Africa, Western Asia, and Haiti.
