Emergency response



In conflict zones, natural disasters and disease outbreaks, Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) teams respond fast in an emergency.

From conducting a complicated war surgery to project managing a vaccination campaign for 40,000 children, our staff has a wealth of experience and practical skills to provide health care, quickly, to those who need it most.

To ensure they have the equipment they need to start treating patients as quickly as possible, MSF has developed pre-packaged disaster kits. These include an obstetrics kit, a complete surgical theatre, and an inflatable hospital, all ready to go when an emergency hits. In addition to emergency response, MSF also runs longer term projects to provide day-to-day health care to communities who otherwise wouldn’t have access to it.
