Send a doctor to the field and you’re sending a lifesaver, a hope provider, and a caregiver who will help some of the millions of patients our teams treat every year. No matter their specialty, MSF doctors quickly become general practitioners out in the field, providing whatever care the patient in front of them requires. Our doctors treat war wounds, help diagnose and treat malnutrition, provide medication to battle tropical diseases, offer vaccinations to curb the spread of disease, and deliver babies.
They are experts at responding to the varied healthcare needs they encounter, which are often different hour by hour, patient by patient. Adept at providing healthcare in difficult situations, MSF doctors also help supervise and train local medical staff to leave a lasting impact on the local healthcare system. Your gift provides transportation, training, travel documents, vaccines and lodging for one doctor. It’s everything a doctor needs for a year-long mission of working with populations at risk and saving lives.
