Our COVID-19 Response

In times of great uncertainty, our support for society’s most vulnerable people is all the more urgent.

At this moment, Médecins Sans Frontières is responding to COVID-19 situations in more than 70 countries, providing critical support and medical expertise.

Our decades of experience working in crisis situations have proven that when it comes to health emergencies, it is critical to act fast.

How we're responding to COVID-19

We’re sending medical teams

Our emergency medical teams are working alongside local healthcare staff on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19.

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 COVID-19 pandemic and to keep existing projects running.

We're protecting healthcare staff

We're setting up lifesaving infection prevention and 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 COVID-19, from medicines and protective equipment to state-of-the-art mobile hospitals.

By donating to Médecins Sans Frontières, you can be the beacon of hope for those requiring urgent medical care, and those working tirelessly on the frontlines to provide it.

If we reach our fundraising target that supports our COVID-19 response, all additional donations will be directed to our general fund and will assist patients wherever the need is greatest.
