“MSF is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare. MSF offers assistance to people based on need, irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.
The work of MSF is based upon humanitarian principles and guided by medical ethics and the principles of neutrality and impartiality.
At times, MSF may speak out publicly in an effort to bring a forgotten crisis to public attention, to alert the public to abuses occurring beyond the headlines, to criticise the inadequacies of the aid system, or to challenge the diversion of humanitarian aid for political interests.
In 2015, MSF had 450 projects in 69 countries in addition to search and rescue operations.
In 2015 alone, 23,700 migrants and refugees were rescued and assisted at sea.
