Our emergency teams are experts at responding to disease outbreaks. Since 1971, we’ve treated hundreds of thousands of people battling HIV/AIDS, cholera and Ebola. Now, with your support, we can help save the lives of people struggling with COVID-19.
Right now, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is providing urgently needed medical care and supporting COVID-19 relief efforts in more than 70 countries.
Our teams are also gearing up to confront potential outbreaks in the hundreds of areas we were already working before the pandemic struck.
We are deploying medics, sending supplies and applying our vast experience of managing epidemics to protect the most vulnerable and save lives.
Our emergency medical teams are working alongside local healthcare staff on the frontline of this pandemic.
We’re helping vulnerable communities
From war-torn Syria and Yemen to vast refugee camps in South Sudan and Bangladesh, we’re doing all we can to fight the pandemic and to keep existing projects running
We're protecting healthcare staff
We're setting up life-saving infection control measures that will protect patients and keep frontline staff safe and healthy
We're sending medical supplies
Our logistics teams are delivering the tools to beat the outbreak, from medicines and protective clothing to state-of-the-art mobile hospitals
As an emergency medical organisation, MSF know first-hand the effects that disease outbreaks can have on communities.
Through every epidemic, it’s the most vulnerable people who need the greatest support.
In the coming months, we will face major challenges both in treating people affected by the pandemic and protecting the people already under our care. Shortages of medical supplies and travel restrictions are likely to drastically impact our work.
But we are strengthening infection controls and adapting to this unprecedented threat every day.
As we fight this disease, your support is as crucial as ever.
