Who is MSF?
MSF is an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971. MSF provides aid in nearly 80 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters. MSF provides independent, impartial assistance to those most in need. MSF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999, and the King Hussein award for Humanitarian work in 2004.
