Médecins Sans Frontières, founded in 1971, is an international non-profit organization that provides emergency medical assistance to people affected by conflict,epidemics, disasters or exclusion from health care. Our teams are made up of tens of thousands of medical professionals, logistics, administrative and various other professions, all guided by our medical ethics and our principles of impartiality, independence and neutrality.
MSF WaCA, created in 2019, is the first MSF headquarters in Africa, and responds to the desire to reinvent the MSF movement after 50 years of humanitarian actions in the world,for more access to care, more reactivity and proactivity for greater medical coverage of affected populations in the world.
Our Ambition Through an independent and impartial approach, we want to make a difference for populations in crisis where the patient is the main actor of his or her health, and where the field teams, close to the daily reality, decide on operational orientations. We want to anchor MSF's interventions in civil society, drawing on its resources, its academic expertise, its research, its medical skills... We want to build a new model that serves patients in an innovative way with a particular focus on digital transformation. Our approach Emergency interventions Innovative projects where patients are the main actors of their health Medium-term projects in partnership with communities and ministries of health. Associates at the heart of strategic decisions. Zero tolerance for abuse and harassment. Agility in our operating methods A work culture oriented towards inclusion and diversity of thought
