Our emergency teams are experts at fighting disease outbreaks. With your support, we can help save the lives of people battling COVID-19.

Right now, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is providing urgently needed medical care and support in more than 70 countries to counter the new coronavirus disease.

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 nearly 50 years of experience fighting epidemics to protect the most vulnerable and save lives.

As an emergency medical organisation, we’ve been fighting disease outbreaks for almost 50 years. We know first-hand the effects they can have on communities.

Since 1971, we’ve treated hundreds of thousands of people battling HIV/AIDS, cholera and Ebola.

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 COVID-19 and protecting the people already under our care.

Let’s be clear, shortages of medical supplies and travel restrictions are going to drastically impact our work. But we are strengthening infection controls and adapting to this unprecedented threat every day.

As we fight this pandemic, your support is as crucial as ever.
