Médecins Sans Frontières is a private, non-profit, international organization. It is made up of 18 national sections in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States and an international office in Brussels.

Each section of MSF publishes annual, audited financial statements according to its national legislation and auditing rules. Based on these national statements, the figures presented here provide an estimate of MSF’s finances on an international level. The consolidated international figures have not been audited. The figures are for the 2000 calendar year; the Activity Report itself covers the period July 2000 through August 2001. All amounts are in millions of Euros.

As part of our effort to guarantee our independence and strengthen our link with society, we have been striving to increase our level of private income. In 2000, 79% of MSF’s income came from private sources. Over 2.5 million private funders and individuals worldwide helped make this possible.

Additional institutional donors include, among others, the governments of Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Norway, the United States, and Sweden, as well as the United Nations.
