Historically, research was not seen as core to the mission of Medecins Sans Frontieres. However, MSF now initiates, sponsors or participates in numerous research projects in multiple field sites. Results from several research projects have had substantial impact on global health policy and provided benefits to populations served by MSF and elsewhere. As a result, research has becom e increasingly integral to MSF activities, both in the field and in global health advocacy.
