2021 marks 50 years of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and our humanitarian work.
We were founded 50 years ago on the belief that everyone has the right to medical care regardless of gender, race, religion, creed or political affiliation, and that people’s health and humanitarian needs outweigh respect for national boundaries.
Our medical action is grounded in human-to-human connection. Every day we reinforce our core principle of humanity as we deliver emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare. We refuse to remain silent about the inequities, abuse, violence and neglect that make our work necessary.
