Epicentre was created in 1986 by MSF, and is a MSF-dedicated non-profit organisation that specialises in epidemiology, training and research in developing countries. MSF holds the majority of votes on its Board of Administration.

Headquartered in Paris, with research centres in Niger and Uganda, the 190-person team conducts research and assessments, and provides training to MSF staff and university students. The centre has also developed expertise in the development and field installation of software applications for the management of health information.

The expertise at Epicentre is put into action through various programmes such as the investigation of epidemics, monitoring, mortality estimates and vaccination campaigns.
