Doctors Without Borders (or Medecins Sans Frontieres), a non-governmental humanitarian aid organization that started in the early 1970s, delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare. DWB/MSF offers assistance to people based on need, irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.
MSF medical teams often witness violence and neglect in the course of their work, largely in regions that receive scant international attention.
MSF rejects the idea that poor people deserve third-rate medical care and strives to provide high-quality care to patients. In 1999, when MSF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, the organisation announced the money would go towards raising awareness of, and fighting against neglected diseases.
